causes fostered by the denomination at large and of this Association in particular, or that ceases 
to be missionary in practice. 

ARTICLE 6. Any church may decline to send messengers to the Association at its pleas-

coercion or law the withdrawal action of the church.

HISTORY OF DURHAM MEMORIAL CHURCH 

The Durham Memorial Baptist Church is located one mile east of Durham, North Carolina 
on the Wake Forest Road at Adams Street. The beginning of the church was through the foresight 
of some members of the Sandy Level Baptist Church, then located on Junction Road, north of the 
Cheek Road. Realizing the need for a new location, these persons with a great amount of faith and 
determination, voted on January 16, 1938, to relocate their church. 

"With three ladies and the Board of Deacons serving as a committee, a new site was chosen at 
the present location of the church. The Sandy Level property was sold on May 1, 1938 for $500.00 
and the cost of the new lot was paid in full on August 2, 1938. 

The new church was named in a congregational meeting of Sandy Level on March 19, 1937. 
The people elected to name their new church Durham Memorial Baptist Church, after Dr. Co- 
lumbus Durham, a past pastor of the First Baptist Church of Durham, North Carolina, and Sec- 
retary of the Baptist State Mission for North Carolina. 

The last service in old Sandy Level was held April 2, 1939 and the people met on Easter Sunday, 
April 9, 1939, at the new site for the first service of Durham Memorial. The membership of Dur- 
ham Memorial in its beginning was formed by persons from Sandy Level and others who joined 
by baptism and statement. 

The building program has been one of continuous progress. An educational building was de- 
dicated April 27, 1941. The followmg year on December 6, 1942, a fund was instituted for a 
sanctuary, which was entered on Easter Sunday, 1952, thirteen years after the beginning of the 
church. In addition to the educational and worship building, the church purchased a parsonage 
at 2530 Rochelle Street which was sold in 1954 and another parsonage purchased at 2711 Wake 



25 



Forest Road. The church also owns a Fellowship Building and a parking - playground lot. Plans 
are now under way for a $100,000 Educational Building. 

Under the leadership of the following pastors: the Reverend J, W. Davis, the Reverend J, M- 
Johnson, the Reverend Wallace O. Andrews, the Reverend James H. Pernell, the Reverend 
William H. Poole and our present pastor, the Reverend Frank Grumpier; the growth of Durham 
Memorial has been a pleasant progressive action. Our church has a membership of 630 and has a 
fully graded Sunday School, Training Union, Woman's Missionary Union and Brotherhood.

HISTORY OF THE WATTS STREET CHURCH 

Feeling the need for a Baptist Church in the northwestern section of our city, a group met in 
the Watts Street School auditorium at 4 o'clock on the afternoon of January 14, 1923, with W. H. 
Young serving as Chairman and J. M. Cheek, Sr., as Secretary. The date for organizing the church 
was set for the first Sunday in March, 1923. 

The church began with a membership of 157. Until the church building at the corner of 
Watts Street and Urban Avenue could be constructed, services were held in the school building. 
The first deacons were: D. C. May, I. S. Eubanks, Dr. Wm. J. H. Cotton, F. R. Clark, Dr. E. H. 
Bowling, E. C. Johnson, J. T. Salmon, and Dr. C. P. Norris. 

On March 18, 1923, the Woman's Missionary Society, consisting of every woman of the 
church, was organized. Mrs. E. C. Johnson served as Chairman of this organizational meeting. 
Elected as President of this new Society was Mrs. B. W. Fassett. The sixty-nine members decided 
on the circle plan and divided into two circles called the Fannie S. Heck and Bostic Circles. Thirty- 
eight years later, in 1961, the Society's membership is 183, with twelve circles. The Youth organ- 
izations have an enrollment of 117, making a total of 300 in the Union. Mrs. W. M. Upchurch is 
now president. On August 2, 1961, at Church Meeting, the Union was incorporated with the 
church and now operates from a set of by-laws of the church. 

On May 5, 1929, a two-manual organ was dedicated to the memory of Mrs. W. C. Lyon, being 
the gift of her husband, Mr. W. C. Lyon. 

In September, 1923, the first pastor. Dr. H. L. Weeks was called and served until September, 
1925. Serving from January, 1926 until July 1932, was Dr. C. Sylvester Green. Rev. J. T. Riddick 
served from October, 1932, until his death December 21, 1938. Dr. Owen R. Herring ihen served 
from June, 1939, until September, 1946, at which time the present pastor. Rev. Warren T. Carr 
was called to the church. 

The first budget was $6,000.00; the present one is $87,140.00. In 1947 the house at 1024 Urban 
Avenue was purchased and used as a Church House for offices and Sunday School classrooms. 
Later it was used as the Parsonage until the purchase of the present parsonage at 1020 Demerius 
Street. In 1953 a new Educational Building annex was erected at a cost of $218,000.00. In 1959 the 
property at 1022 Urban Avenue was purchased as well as the Holton property on Watts Street 
This latter plot was cleared and paved and is presently used as a parking lot. 

The current membership of the church is 1,250. Beginning January 5, 1959, it became nec- 
essary to hold two morning worship services, one at 8:30 and the other at 11:00. An evening wor- 
ship service is also held, except during the summer months. The Sunday School enrollment at 
present is 1,069, and that of the Training Union is 201.

REPORT OF 
SUPERINTENDENT OF MISSIONS 

Reports from various committees and organizations during these two days will bring us up 
to date on successes and failures during the past associational year. To these facts I could add 
little. Perhaps, however, I could make a few observations that would be helpful. 

In our associational calendar of activities we are continually striving to correlate, consoli- 
date and simplify. During the coming year no meetings have been scheduled during Holy Week, 
the entire month of July, Sunday School Preparation Week and the first two weeks of October. 
We feel the churches in Chatham county are justified in their requests for more meetings in that 
area and we are doing something about it. 

In Sunday School work we are trying something new, - tailor-made conferences are being of- 
fered to churches or groups of churches according to their expressed needs. On this basis we be- 
lieve we can offer assistance to every church, either through our associational officers or through 
the enlisting of state and southwide personnel. 

In all of our organizations I find an increased willingness among the officers to "go" to the 
churches rather than simply saying "come" to associational meetings. 

The lack of trained, qualified, and available leaders in our churches is a grave problem. The 
small percentage of members that have been discovered and enlisted gives us concern. The few 
people in our churches who apparently are capable of holding associational positions is appal- 
ling at times. It is so difficult to find talent and consecration in the same individual. It is so diffi- 
cult to find individuals with talent and consecration who are willing and sometimes are allowed 
to take on this larger field of service. 

If our churches and our association were to do nothing but initiate and follow through in 
a Manpower Survey from the revivals in April thru June, it would revolutionize Baptist work 
in this area. 

We must enlist people with the understanding that they will accept and seek out training 
opportunities. But most of our churches cannot offer adequate training for their leaders, and the 
association is obligated to offer to church leaders courses in which the teachers go far beyond the 
pages of study course books. (We did some of this in our Sunday School Enrichment Week last 
spring and our Central School last week.) 

This means that our association should seek more help from our state convention, and our 
churches should avail themselves of associational training opportunities, — if we ever raise the 
level of our church leadership. We should do more than announce the weeks at Ridgecrest and 
other training conferences; we should promote attendance if we have to offer financial help. We 
must get our leaders to specialize. No single position in our churches or in our association is so in- 
volved and difficult that an individual of average intelligence cannot be an expert in that area 
in a few months with reasonable effort. 

Our Seminary Extension Center to be launched soon, will make a real contribution to any 
individual who will really apply himself. 

When we enlist individuals for positions, however, we must "spell out" their responsibili- 
ties. Job descriptions are as important in our churches and in our association as they are in the 
business world. We must not criticize individuals for not doing their jobs if we never tell them 



29 



what their jobs are. Our church nominating committees should be selected earlier in the year, 
perhaps made standing committees, that they might do a more thorough job. 

In our association we are continually striving for more efficient operation. We plan to sug- 
gest activities, patterns of meetings, and deadlines for our various committees. Our church 
histories should be complete in April or May; the officers of all our organizations should be ap- 
proved by June or July; most of the reports for the annual meeting could be complete in Septem- 
ber with only a few as late as Octoberl5. We plan to correlate the work of the various nominating 
committees to prevent overlapping. With the workers of all organizations, including Woman's 
Missionary Union, now taking office in the fall we are able to have up-to-date information in our 
Minutes. 

Now that our constitution allows for an executive committee, we have a group to advise 
with the Superintendent of Missions in proper procedures, to handle emergencies between meet- 
ings of the Board, and perhaps to act as a long-range planning committee. 

There is a possibility that Certificates of Merit will not be awarded again after this year. 
(This was voted. -Ed.) But the Church Achievement Program sponsored by the Church Devel- 
opment Department of our Baptist State Convention, and the associational missionaries unof- 
ficially, will more than suffice as a replacement. Every pastor and church leader in Yates Assoc- 
iation would do well to read the check lists in this program to discover the weak spots in their 
churches. 

Two big events are coming February 25 thru March 2, and April 1 thru 15, our Schools 
of Missions and Simultaneous Revivals. We must know within a few days the names of the chur- 
ches that have voted to participate in the Schools of Missions. Our list of churches must be ac- 
curate. In our Schools of 1956 our churches were asked to contribute additional money to cover 
the cost, but this time the cost is included in our associational budget. Please notify us at once of 
your official decision. 

Our meeting on November 21 at Watts St. church has been changed from a Deacons' Night 
to an Information Meeting for our Schools of Missions. It is extremely important that the leaders 
of our participating churches be present at this meeting to iearn how to organize, what committees 
Will be necessary, the schedule of activities, etc. 

One condition in our association concerns me greatly - the low salaries of many of our pastors. 
'When I think of how good the association has been to me I wonder how some of our men are 
"making ends meet." Some of them have not had any increase in remunerations in several years 
and the cost of living has been going up 3 per cent each year. That means they have had their sal- 
aries reduced year after year; night after night they retire thinking of their creditors and their 
inability to pay their bills. Every one must receive a raise every year to maintain the same standard 
of living. Our churches should also put an equivalent of 10 per cent of the salary toward retire- 
ment. 

Ever since coming to the Yates Association nearly eight years ago, we have tried to make 
our office a "Servicenter, " - but the time has come when we must ask the organizations and com- 
mittees to help us in any way they can — by sending their own cards to announce meetings, and in 
other ways. We are not trying to get OUT of work, but we ARE anxious to make our time count for 
the most. 

Finally, I want to say "thanks" to all of you in general and your officers in particular for 
your many courtesies, your cooperation, for the privilege of working in Yates Association. I 
express appreciation to Marian Crutchfield, my secretary, for "sticking with me through thick 
and thin" during her seven years. 

As we in Yates Association begin another year together, let us pray for each other, work 
together and strive for new heights for His glory i

REPORT OF THE FINANCE COMMITTEE 

Receipts from the churches in I960 and 1961 reached an all-time high, with all churches in 
the Association participating. 

We owe to Security Savings and Loan $8,104.20 on property north of Durham at Carver 
Street and Duke Homestead Road. We are paying $100.00 per month on this amount. Against 
this indebtedness we are due to receive another $1000.00 from the State Convention which 
will complete their commitm.ent of $4,000.00 to us against this project. There is an indebtedness 
of $4,675.12 due the Security Savings and Loan on the Assembly Grounds caretaker's home. 
We are paying $50.00 per month against this indebtedness. 

During the past summer we were fortunate in being able to employ a Southeastern Seminary 
student who did a very commendable job in setting up the preliminary work for a survey north 
of Chapel Hill and south of Carrboro-Chapel Hill. He was a great help in the survey of Dogwood 
Acres south of Carrboro Chapel Hill. This work was done for $750.00 and your Committee is 
convinced that this money was well spent in preparing us for future expansion over the years. 

The proposed budget was presented in May at the Loyalty Dinner in Chapel Hill to the 
Pastors, Finance Committee Chairmen and Treasurers of the churches. The meeting was well at- 
tended and an informative discussion was held which resulted in a better understanding among 
our people of our Associational goals. 

Last year it was recommended that a balance sheet be presented to this session, but our 
Treasurer found it more difficult to compile than was originally believed, and we are unable to 
present it this morning, but will have it ready before the minutes go to the printers. (Treasurer 
was not able to supply balance sheet. Ed.) 

As the years come and go, we are conscious and grateful for the wonderful cooperation of 
all of our churches in the support of the Associational work. With the coming of the Research 
Triangle into our Association, we realize there is a tremendous challenge lying ahead and trust 
that we can depend on our total membership to recognize the financial needs of our Association 
in this advancement.

REPORT OF 



EXTENSION COMMITTEE 

Early in the year your Committee recommended to the Associational Board that a survey 
be conducted during the summer in the area North of Chapel Hill in cooperation with the Church 



34 



Development Department of the Baptist State Convention. Charles Brand Parker, Jr. of the 
Southeastern Seminary was employed for this task. He has done an excellent job in mapping 
the area, and preparing materials for the visitors. The census has not been completed but what 
has been finished already shows many unchurched Baptists as well as unsaved people. The re- 
sults of this census will be available to all churches in Chapel Hill and vicinity, and for the use of 
the Extension Committee during- the coming years. 

Your Committee has been active in seeking out sites for work in the future. Our greatest 
need in this work is to be able to purchase property before the price is prohibitive. A sub-com- 
mittee has been asked to investigate and take an option on a possible site in Parkwood. 
Northwood Forrest and other areas have also been discussed by the Committee. At this time we 
do not have definite recommendations concerning new work, but we do feel that your Committee 
next year should continue to explore the above possibilities. 

We recommend that the Fellowship Baptist Church be received into full fellowship in our 
Association. 

Last year the Association purchased property at the intersection of Carver Street and Duke 
Homestead Road. The Association in Annual Session, instructed the Extension Committee to be- 
gin a work as soon as possible. The Grace Baptist Church was asked to sponsor the Mission with- 
out financial responsibility, since the Baptists of the area were willing to start a Mission and 
assume financial responsibility from the beginning. The Committee is grateful to Rev. H. B. 
Anderson, the Rev. Vistor S. Dowd, and others who have so generously contributed their time 
to this work. The Division of Missions of our Baptist State Convention has contributed $3,000.00 
toward the purchase of this property and near the close of 1961 we expect to receive an additional 
$1,000.00. The report of the sponsoring Church is as follows: 

On March 20, I960 our Associational Board authorized the purchase of property at the in- 
tersection of Carver Street and Duke Homestead Road as the future site for a new Baptist Church. 
The Association, in the last annual session, approved the recommendation of the Church Exten- 
sion Committee that this work "be developed as soon as possible.' 

The Church Extension Committee requested certain interested Baptists living in this area 
to take a census to ascertain the number of Baptists who might be interested in forming a church 
in that community. The census revealed that there were fifty-two families definitely interested 
in this project. This report was brought to he Associational Board in the May meeting and the 
work was approved. Grace Baptist Church was asked to sponsor a mission in this North Durham 
Community. Grace Church accepted this sponsorship and approved a sponsoring committee. 
This committee met with some of those Baptists who helped take the census and asked them to 
serve as a steering committee in starting the work. 

The Holt School was secured as a meeting place until further arrangements could be made. 
June 4, was opening date and the congregation that assembled was most encouraging. There are 
now fifty members and eighty-three enrolled in Sunday School. Our Moderator assisted us 
in pleaching during July and Brother Frank Marks of Holloway Street assisted in August. These 
brethren rendered an invaluable service to the work for which we are grateful. 

Brother Sammy James, an appointee of the Foreign Mission Board, has been called as in- 
terim pastor and will begin his work October 22. 

A wonderful spirit is manifested and a beautiful fellowship has grown in the mission as the 
people have a mind to work enthusiastically for a growing church in North Durham.

REPORT OF 
EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

These are tremendous days in which we live. Billions are being spent for getting men to the 
moon, while comparatively little is spent for getting men to God. Multitudes sit in darkness and 
many in despair while the forces of darkness move constantly in a dedicated abandon toward 
their objectives. The number of hopeless people - hopeless because they do not know Christ 
grows daily. The world's population is increasing by 48,000,000 per year. All religions are win- 
ning only 10,000,000 per year. 

Many of these lost people live in the territory of our association. They live near our chur- 
ches. In regard to their need for God they have been deluded by the powers of darkness, and num- 
bers of them disillusioned by the apathy and lack of dedication to Christ on the part of professed 
Christians. In this desperate day God's people must wake up to the fact that "business as 
usual" will not suffice. Surely this is the time for total dedication to Christ in His purpose of win- 
ning the multitudes to God. 

To move forward we must start from where we are. Our association is the best launching 
place for new frontiers in evangelism and missions. 

Therefore, we recommend: 

X. That we encourage ourselves in the Lord our God for resurging interest in evangelism 
across our Convention, continuously praying that God may work in us and through us to bring 
the revival we need. 

2. That our association participated in the "Baptist Jubilee Revivals" in 1962 through 1964. 
Our dates axe as follows: 

1962 April 1-15 

1963 March 24-April 7 

1964 March 29-April 12 



36 



3. That each church prayerfully and studiously consider participating in the Baptist Jub- 
ilee Revival, and that special emphasis in all revivals and week by week evangelism through- 
out the year be placed upon personal, face-to-face, heart-to-heart soul-winning and faithful 
teaching and preaching of the Gospel. 

4. That all churches make full use of the Revival Plan Book for 1962, 1964, supplied free 
to all pastors by the Division of Evangelism, Baptist State Convention. Reprints of portions of 
the book are available for members of the church councils. 

5. That our association have on December 10th at 3:00 P.M. at Ephesus Church a program 
devoted to personal witnessing with laymen in charge. 

6. That our association recognize the elected associational officers as the evangelism com- 
mittee, the Chairman of Evangelism to be the Chairman of this committee, and that we pledge 
our wholehearted cooperation to this committee. 

7. That our association send the Chairman of Evangelism to Ridgecrest for the annual conference 
on Evangelism during Home Mission Week. 

8. That we commit ourselves to the following outline of achievement for 1962: 

I. CHAIRMAN OF EVANGELISM — An evangelistic pastor elected to serve during associa- 
tional year. Promotes perennial soul-winning in all churches, serves as Chairman of Baptist 
Jubilee Revival committee and Chairman of Evangelism Committee, which is composed of 
associational officers. 

II. ASSOCIATIONAL EVANGELISM CLINIC — Annual clinic devoting two sessions exclu- 
sively to evangelism. Seventy-five percent of churches represented by pastors. Seventy-five 
percent of churches with at least three members of their church councils present. 

III. ANNUAL BAPTIST JUBILEE REVIVAL — Eighty percent of churches participating. 
Eighty percent of churches observing same dates. Eighty percent of churches with two consec- 
utive weeks of evangelistic preaching. 

IV. ALL CHURCHES CONDUCTING REVIVALS — Each church conducting a minimum of 
one revival annually. Fifty percent of churches conducting two revivals annually. Churches spon- 
soring missions revivals were needed. 

V. EACH CHURCH WINNING AND BAPTIZING NEW MEMBERS — Churches endeavor- 
ing to increase previous year's baptismal record. Seventy-five percent of churches using the church 
council. Churches sustaining perennial evangelism and perennial spiritual growth programs.

REPORT OF 
LONG RANGE PLANNING COMMITTEE 

The major item of concern to the committee during the past year has been the consideration 
of the many facets involved in the establishing of a Chaplaincy at Watts Hospital. 

Rev. Bill Pearson discussed the problems involved with Dr. Richard Young of the School 
of Pastoral Care, Baptist Hospital, Winston Salem, N. C, and was advised that of necessity any 
action would have to come from an interdenominational group in order to have the backing of 
a non-sectarian hospital. Rev. Pearson also consulted with Dr. R.F. Smith, Pastor of First Bap- 
tist Church, North Wilkesboro, concerning a plan in operation in which a non-denominational 
group supports a full time chaplain at a 100 bed hospital there. 

Dr. D. R. Perry advised the committee that there was considerable interest in this subject 
by local persons including members of the Watts Hospital Staff. 

The Reverend Malbert Smith, Jr., President of the Durham Ministers Association, advised 
that no specific effort concerning a chaplaincy had been made by that group in the past. 



37 



The committee recommends to the Yates Baptist Association that a committee of three (3) 
be appointed by the Moderator to confer with the Interdenominational Durham Ministers Assoc- 
iation as to the possibility of the establishing of a Chaplaincy Program at Watts Hosptial and that 
this committee seek to work with representatives of the Durham Ministers Association in the 
promotion of a joint meeting of ministers and the Watts Hospital Administration and staff for 
the purpose of discussing this matter. 

The committee is of the opinion that the newly formed and elected Executive Committee of 
the Yates Association will have aims and objectives so nearly parallel with those of the Long 
Range Planning Committee that this committee should not be renamed for 1962. 

The committee recommends that all of its functions become the responsibility of the Ex- 
ecutive Committee of the Association and that a Long Range Planning Committee not be named. 

The committee would like to commend those responsible for the planning which has been 
done with regard to our Assembly Grounds and suggest that the Assembly Grounds Committee, 
or the Executive Committee, continue to investigate means of improving and enlarging this 
facility and the possibility of some additional or alternate method of financing the improve- 
ments. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Ellis P. Thomas, Chairman 



REPORT OF 
THE CERTIFICATE OF MERIT COMMITTEE 



The Certificate of Merit program has fulfilled a real need in our Association over the past 
few years. It has challenged our churches to perform diligently the work of our Lord. However, 
we feel that it has served its purpose. (Our Superintendent of Missions concurs with us in this 
decision.) 

We recommend that the Association look with favor upon the New Church Achievement 
Program which is sponsored by the Church Development Department of the North Carolina 
Baptist State Convention; that our churches become familiar with and consider the possibilities 
of entering the development program before January 1, 1962, (deadline for churches to enter 
this associational year) ; and that our Superintendent of Missions promote and challenge our 
churches to enter this "do-it-yourself" development program, designed to stimulate growth and 
development in church work.

E. T. Vinson, Chairman 
Certificate of Merit Committee 

REPORT ON 
THE BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

The Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina is a Christian agency providing love and 
care for more than 800 deserving boys and girls annually. These are dependent and neglected 
children who, for some reason, have found it necessary to live away from their homes. 

Our child care ministry is child centered, Christ centered and church centered. It is based 
on the redemptive plan of God. These children have lost their parents through a number of ways. 
Workers use all the skills available, plus the help of God, to establish in these children trust in 
adults, trust in self, and trust in God. 

Boys and girls live at Mills Home, Kennedy Home, and Odum Home. One hundred twenty- 
five children live in Christian Foster Homes throughout the state. Some mothers who have lost 
husband and father receive financial grants in the home which enables them to keep and care for 
their own children. Well trained case workers are spending an increasing amount of time work- 
ing with and strengthening families. 

It became necessary during the past year to reduce the number of children in Foster Home 



38 



care by 35 boys and girls. At one time we v/ere caring for 162 children in Foster Homes. We now 
have 127. This trend can be changed only as we have additional income. Many types of service to 
children in need are being delayed for lack of money. 

Our financial support for this year has come from the following sources: 

Thanksgiving Offering 33 per cent 

Cooperative Program 32 per cent 

Once a Month Offerings 18 per cent 

Special Gifts and 17 Per cent 

Endowment 

The Thanksgiving offering goal for 1961 is $400,000.00. Let us help this to become a 
reality ! 

We may stay informed about the child care program throughout the year by reading CHAR- 
ITY AND CHILDREN. This newspaper is published each week by the Baptist Children's 
Homes. It is now in its 75th year and circulation is higher than ever before — well over 52,000. 
Every family in every church should receive this Christian newspaper. 

We in the Yates Association have contributed $15,482.35 to the Children's Homes, Octo- 
ber 1, I960 through July 31, 1961, $7,757.60 through monthly offerings and $7,724.75 through 
the Thanksgiving offering; with only four churches not having had a part at that time. 1.300 
copies of CHARITY AND CHILDREN are received by members in our churches each week; 
this represents only one out of every thirteen resident members. 

Respectfully submitted, 
C. M. Hight, Chairman 



REPORT OF 
BIBLICAL RECORDER 



When North Carolina Baptists think of their own literature, they naturally think of their 
state Baptist paper since 1833 — the Biblical Recorder. Down through the years, it has been the 
one connecting link among Baptists. Not satisfied to live in the past, though, the Recorder strives 
to convey its message in an attractive, appealing manner. 

The R.ecorder is edited so it will be of interest to all North Carolina Baptists. Consider 
the many features each week — full page pictures on the cover, stimulating editorials. Life in 
the Churches, the Sunday School Lesson, the Family Page, changes in the churches, complete 
coverage of all Baptist news, numerous pictures, inspirational pieces, stories about your fellow 
Baptists, and many other articles too numerous to mention. 

Circulation which is the highest in history continues to rise. At the present time it is more 
than 78,000, up more than 10,000 over a year ago. The goal for 1964 is 100,000 and the help of 
every church is needed to reach this goal. 

At a workshop of Southern Baptist editors at Syracuse University this summer, the Recorder 
received high recognition from the Syracuse professors who praised it for the pleasing appear- 
ance and good content. The professors especially liked the covers and the large number of good

It is the Recorder's job to keep North Carolina Baptists informed^ — but please remember 
that this is a two-way street. Even though the Recorder may be judged the outstanding paper in 
the Southern Baptist Convention, if you are not receiving it, you have no way of knowing what you 
are missing. 

The Every Family Plan is best and simplest. Nearly 500 churches testify to the value of 
sending the Recorder to every resident family at the cost of a four cent stamp each week — or 
$2.00 a year. It doesn't cost, it pays. As a starter, your church may want to get four or more people 
to take the Recorder, thus qualifying for the Club Plan before going to the Every Family Plan. 

The Recorder staff pledges itself to get out a paper that will justify the confidence your 
church places in it. Nowhere else will you be able to get so much for so little. Try the Recorder this 
coming year and see for yourself the blessing you will receive from it each week. 

At the present time four of our churches are not listed as active participants in our Bibli- 



39 



cal Recorder program. It is our hope that these may be enrolled during the coming year. All of our 
other churches have either the Club Plan or the Every Family Plan in operation.

REPORT OF 
NORTH CAROLINA HOMES FOR THE AGING 

We are now in the eleventh year of operation in our three homes, Resthaven and Hayes 
Homes in Winston Salem, and the Albemarle Home in Albemarle. Twenty-six new residents 
have been received .during the past year and fourteen were called to their reward by death. We 
have 125 residents in these three Homes and a waiting-list of 130 for admission. 

It is hoped that the Hamilton Home in Martin County will be completed and ready for oc- 
cupancy by January 1962. This fourth Home will provide for 30 additional residents. 

A wonderful gift of a handsome duplex apartment has been made possible through the gen- 
erosity of Miss Roxie Sides of Winston Salem. This new facility will be completed this fall and 
will provide for four additional residents. It is being built on the Reynolds Park Road site in 
Winston Salem. 

The average age of our residents is around 80, and we rejoice that the life-span is increasing 
for them. One of the residents. Aunt Fannie Drumright, reached her 100th birthday on July 6 of 
this year. She is the first resident to attain this remarkable age. Certainly she is a living example 
of the years that are being added to a person's life by the loving kindness of North Carolina Bap- 
tists shown through the tender care administered in our Homes. 

The pressing financial needs for our Homes now is to help pay off a debt of $275,000.00 
which has been assumed to complete the Hamilton Home in Martin County, and for liquidating 
the debt on the new infirmary at Winston Salem. It is hoped that Special Day offerings and gifts 
from churches will be increased in order that we may go forward in the great task which we have 
undertaken, and meet the ever increasing demands of the aging among us as quickly as possible. 

We are happy to report that the churches of the Yates Association paid during this past 
year, as of October 1, 1961, over $2,000.00 through direct contributions to the Homes and 
through the Cooperative Program. We are proud to rank 13th in gifts among other associations 
in the state participating in this worthy effort. The total contributions through the State As- 
sociations was $86,340.21. The managers of our Homes deeply appreciate every contribution for 
this cause and solicit your continued interest and concern for their welfare. 

The managers of our Homes are Rev. William A. Poole, General Superintendent, and Mr. 
C. O. Weaver of Greensboro, Business Administrator. We are profoundly grateful to have these 
dedicated leaders serving with such unusual and business-like ability in directing the affairs of 
our Homes.

REPORT ON 
NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

Our Baptist Hospital continues to try to serve the people of North Carolina in the fullest 
measure possible. Last year it provided its largest number of days of hospital care and saw the 
largest number of patients in the Clinics - 78,000 visits to the Out-Patient Clinics, from 96 of the 
100 counties in the State, and 75,000 Private Clinic visits. 

NEW DEVELOPMENTS 

A new type of unit for the sterilization of surgical and other equipment by gas was recently 
installed. This is more effective than the older methods used in the fight against infection. In 
the X-Ray Department a rapid film developer is now in use. 



40 



One of the most recent additions is a Pastors' Library given by Mrs. "Walter Williams of 
Burlington in memory of her husband. Everyone is invited to ask about this excellent collection 
of religious books and to use it when they visit the hospital. 

The New Progressive Care Unit was opened in March, providing 80 beds for patients who 
do not require the more expensive and intensive care of the regular hospital. This is a new and ad- 
vanced step in hospitalization and patients are highly pleased with it. Each suite of rooms is given 
the name of an association in our state and when this new unit was opened my wife and I had the 
privilege of staying in the room marked "Yates." The rooms are luxurious but they were the 
furnishings of the "lower bidder." 

URGENT NEEDS 

Among the many needs at our Baptist Hospital, there are some which are acute. One of the 
most pressing needs is a building to provide classrooms and other facilities for the eight schools 
operated by the Hospital. These schools are training urgently needed medical personnel and 
Christian workers in addition to doctors. They are badly limited and handicapped for lack of 
room. 

The need for enlargement of the overcrowded and seriously limited Out-Patient Depart- 
ment, Children's Center, and Psychiatry section of the Hospital is urgent. The need is far beyond 
the present facilities in each of these departments. 

A new opportunity to help meet this need is now open in the Service Patient Endowment 
Fund. This is a permanent endowment invested by the Hospital's Trustees with all of its pro- 
ceeds being used for the help of Service Patients. Gifts in any amount can be made at any time, in 
one's own name, in memory of a friend, as a memorial to a loved one, or the Endowment can be 
placed in one's will. All gifts will be gratefully received, appropriately acknowledged, and a 
permanent record kept. 

The constant need for the Mother's Day Funds for underwriting Service Patients grows 
more and more acute. We cannot emphasize too strongly the importance of this Fund and the 
need for our churches greatly to enlarge their Mother's Day Offerings. As of September 7, 41 of 
our 46 churches in the Yates Association had contributed through these offerings. We remind our 
churches that gifts through the Cooperative Progam are not sufficient to take care of those who 
cannot pay. 

In the promotion of the Mother's Day Offering in our association we divided the churches 
into groups, each group with a captain. Through this means every church was contacted and 
urged to support the Mother's Day Offering consistent with the local church's financial policies. 
I personally want to thank these five captains for their great help. 

Finally I want to express my sincere appreciation for all the help and encouragement given 
me by our Superintendent of Missions and his fine secretary. I never realized how busy and yet 
how willing to serve these fine folks are until I inherited this job. 

Let us support Mr. Mumford, our associational program, and institutions such as our Bap- 
tist Hospital during the coming year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
W. S. Bagwell 
Hospital Representative 

REPORT OF 
MUSIC COMMITTEE 

The Yates Associational Music Committee was organized one year ago in accordance with 
the structure outlined by the music department of the Sunday School Board. This committee is 
charged with the responsibility of promoting music as a vital part of the life and work of the 
churches. The following officers make up the committee: associational music director, modera- 
tor, superintendent of missions, pastor-advisor, director of instrumental activities, director of 
training, director of congregational activities, director of graded choir activities, and director of 
publicity and promotion. 

41 



Two association-wide music meetings were held this past year. The first was a Music Con- 
ference at Grace Church for choir directors, pianists, organists, pastors, and other persons in- 
terested in the church music program. The main emphases of this conference was the introduc- 
tion of the music committee and its function and promotion of the local church ministry of 
music. 

In February, a Hymn Sing was held at Edgemont Church with approximately 450 people 
in attendance. This musical event proved to be a great success in . every way. The choirs of three 
churches participated: Lowe's Grove, Edgmont, and Bells. 

In addition to the above music meetings, music study courses were included in The Central 
School at Grace Church. Five courses were taught and well enough received to continue offering 
music courses in the Central School. 

Plans for the future include two music conferences for music leaders, and another Hymn 
Sing in the summer of 1962. 

The Associational Music Committee wants the church leaders in the association to know 
that members of the committee are willing to offer any help they can to any church desiring to 
initiate or improve the ministry of music among its own local congregation. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Leonard A. Smith

REPORT OF 
ASSEMBLY GROUNDS COMMITTEE 

We do not have mature and efficient Assembly Grounds projects in the adjacent Assoc- 
iations to observe as models for planning and equipping our project. With the passing of the 
years we have realized that there have been varying ideas with the different committees as to how 
to plan and equip the Assembly Grounds to best serve its mission. Your current committee de- 
cided that it was imperative that we have a fixed plan. We sought and acquired the services of 
Professor Charlie Scott, professor in outdoor recreational planning at North Carolina State Col- 
lege, to assist us in drawing a MASTER PLAN. A preliminary to this MASTER PLAN was 
drawn and displayed before the Associational Board for its approval. The plan reveals a need 
for additional space for future expansion as well as present needs. 

Among other things that have been done this year are, the laying out of a one way drive 
with the sites of future buildings, the amphitheater, parking areas, etc., marked as portrayed in 
the MASTER PLAN. The temporary sign at the entrance has been repainted and lettered. A 
small tool and playground equipment shed has been errected. A contract has been awarded for 
landscaping and seeding the yard around the caretaker's home. Some of the present facilities 
(trash cans, tool shed, etc.) have been repainted and labeled. 

The main problem in promoting the Assembly Grounds project is the lack of knowledge 
on the part of so many of our people of the various churches as to the potential of this missionary 
project. 

With the sole purpose of this project being to point our people to the Lord we covet your 
sympathetic interest. 

Respectfully submitted 
J. E, Booth, Chairman 

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD 

Brotherhood and Royal Ambassador work, not only in our own Association, but also in 
our entire Southern Baptist Convention, continues in a difficult period of transition. However, 
we are very pleased with evidence of a brighter tomorrow. The new Royal Ambassador Pro- 
gram Materials are being released at the present time and are marvelous. 



45 



The new Brotherhood organizational set-up is proving to be far superior to the previous 
system. Several churches are on record as planning to start Brotherhoods within the next few 
weeks. 

We feel that the Associational Brotherhood Meetings during the past year have been of a 
high quality. Two workshops have been held within the last twelve months, one in October, 

1960 and the other in September, 196I. The annual Ladies' Night Banquet was held at Temple 
Church in January with both an excellent program and attendance. The final serious note em- 
phasized, by demonstration, the importance of Christian witnessing. Two identical meetings 
were held in May, one at Grace Church and the other in Bells Church in Chatham County. The 
stewardship of life was presented m the form of a two-act play. 

The annual Man-Boy Night was changed to a "Parents-Boy" Night and held in August 
with the play-offs of the R.A. Baseball League in Durham Athletic Park in the afternoon, fol- 
lowed by a weiner roast, mission study and final inspirational service at Grace Chiirch that 
night. The Rev. J. G. Goodwin, Missionary on furlough from Korea, was the speaker. The Rev. 
B. W. Jackson spoke to the adults on the new R. A. program during the boys' mission study per- 
iod. 

In conclusion, let me say personally and on behalf of the Associational Brotherhood officers, 
that we are willing and anxious to be of help to the men of our churches in organizing new groups 
and in rendering every assistance to established Brotherhoods. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Aubrey Wheeler 

REPORT OF 
WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

For the love of Christ constraineth us to promote Christian missions through a program 
of mission study, prayer, community missions, and stewardship. 

Someone has said that "ignorance is bliss and knowledge is folly", but we believe this is 
misquoted. It should be, "knowledge is bliss and ignorance is folly." We have endeavored 
in 1960-61 to have knowledge of the needs in the world by the studying of books that have given 
us a glimpse into the work of our Southern Baptist Convention "unto the uttermost parts of the 
earth." There were 302 books taught with 2,497 books being read. 

The women of our association continued to become aware of the world by subscribing to 
our magazines - W.M.S. to ROYAL SERVICE - 1,096, Y.W.A. to the WINDOW - 129, G.A. to 
TELL - 432, Sunbeams to SUNBEAM ACTIVITY - 185. The reading of the COMMISSION 
and the HOME MISSION Magazines is encouraged. 

That the women in our association might be better trained to lead others, we have provided 
two leadership conference. September 19, I960 we had our first conference at First Baptist 
Church with 300 women in attendance. This is the largest number that has attended such a con- 
ference. However, we are not interested merely in numbers but in trained leadership. April 18, 

1961 another conference was held at Lakewood Church for Presidents, Y.W.A., G.A., and Sun- 
beam Leaders, counselors, and directors. The desire for the W.M.S. Leadership Course offered 
by the W.M.U. of the Southern Baptist Convention was expressed. Plans were made for this 
training. We feel that knowledge of our duties has helped us to go beyond the achievem'ents of 
passed years. 65 wom^en hold Leadership Cards. 

A program of planned Community Missions was carried on throughout the year by the 
organizations: W.M.S.-45, Y.W.A.-22, G.A.-79, Sunbeams-67. 

A special project that has been carried out is the visiting of the Murdock School at Butner. 
Each Sunday afternoon a certain church is responsible for a program. The response was good 
last year but even better for the coming year. 

Giving through the Cooperative Program: W.M.S. -2, 368, Y.W.A.-341, G.A.-685, Sunbeams- 

434. 

The Yates Associational W.M.U. Meeting was held March 23, 1961 at Angier Avenue. Miss 
Willa Dean Freeman, State Girl's Auxiliary Director, and Mrs. John Allen Moore, Missionary 
to Europe, were our speakers. Mrs. Moore showed slides and *-old of our work in Yugoslovia. 



46 



The organizations that observed weeks or seasons of prayer were: 

Organizations Foreign Missions Home Missions State Missions 
W.M.S. 40 40 37 
Y.W.A. 16 16 16 
G.A. 42 42 49 
Sunbeams 37 37 37 

The stewardship of the women of the Yates Association was expressed by the giving of 
offerings to Lottie Moon, Home Missions, and State Offering. 
Tithers: W.M.S.-495 - Y.W.A.-124 - G.A.-396. 

The enrollment of the W.M.S. has decreased. For the year ending September I960 there was 
enrolled 2,798, and in September 1961 only 2,555 were reported. We feel that this is due to the 
new way of reporting the women who work with our youth. 

We have only one church in our association that does not have a W.M.S. A new Mission 
organized in June plans to begin a W.M.S. soon. 

Two new Y.W.A.s have been organized - Mt. Carmel and Plainview. There are 25 Y.W.A. 
Organizations in the Association with 276 members. There is 1 approved Y.W.A. and 4 ad- 
vanced Y.W.A. Auxiliaries. 

The Girls Auxiliary has done a wonderful work this year with 74 organizations and 789 
members. This year a G.A. Camp was held in August. Our Missionaries for the week, Mr. and 
Mrs. J. G. Goodwin, said that it was one of the very best they had ever attended. We plan to have 
a camp each year. 

There are 69 Sunbeam organizations with a total enrollment of 1,111 members. A Sunbeam 
Nursery was begun at Durham Memorial. 

I am sure that the spiritual life of our women and our churches has been strengthened be- 
cause of the work of Woman's Missionary Union. 

Our theme for 1961-62 is: "That Thy Way May Be Known." 

Our goal is tc continue to witness, give, go, and pray until the whole wide world knows of 
our Saviour's love. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Vernon Weaver, President

RESOLUTION PASSED BY THE 
YATES BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 
IN ANNUAL SESSION, 
OCTOBER 25, I96I 

Whereas the patient in the hospital always expects and wants his pastor to call on him reg- 
ularly while he is there. 

Whereas many doctors recognize that the presence and prayers of the minister is an impor- 
tant part of the ministry to the patient, 

Whereas the pastors want to visit their church members regularly while they are in the 
hospital. 

Whereas there is a continual parking problem at Watts Hospital, and the minister invari- 
ably wastes time and money looking for a parking place, 

Therefore we the messengers to the 13th annual session of the Yates Baptist Association 
respectfully request the trustees of Watts Hospital to direct the administrator to provide ade- 
quate and convenient parking for ministers of all denominations to carry out their ministry of 
visiting the sick.

Report Section 



HISTORY OF CHEEK HEIGHTS BAPTIST CHURCH 

The Cheek Heights Baptist Church is located on North Hardee Street in the north 
east section of Durham just inside the city limits. 

The Reverend Ervin Gates first recognized the need for a church in this immediate 
area. For approximately two years he sponsored a Sunday School and conducted church 
services in the various homes of the community until interest developed sufficiently to 
demand the organization of a church. In 1941 the church was organized as the 
Watkins Memorial Baptist Church, with twenty-five members. A building program was 
begun on the corner of Hardee Street and Cheek Road. The lot was donated by Mr. and 
Mrs. John Faucette. 

During the building program several members supplied building materials. Mr. 
G. W. Williams financed the sawmill expenses and bought the brick. 

The first trustees were: G. W. Williams, J. H. Ladd and Vance Seals. The first 
pastor of the newly organized church was the Reverend E. R. Teague. 

Sometime between the years 1941-43 the name of the church was changed to Cheek 
Heights Baptist Church. The available records do not inform us as to why the change 
was made. 

On Sunday, March 7, 1943, twenty-seven members met to reaffirm their faith in the 
Articles of Faith and the church Covenant, with a delegation from the Baptist Council, 
the Mount Zion Association and the Baptist Minister's Association of Durham. 

In 1943 Mrs. Vance T. Seals became the first representative from this church to 
serve on the Baptist Council. Mr. C. H. Shelton became the first Training Union 
Director. 

On May 3, 1944 there was a resolution passed by the church in conference to give 
the land back to the original owners if at any time the church ceased to be a Missionary 
Baptist Church. 

During the early years when the church was small and weak financially, aid was 
received from the State Convention for the Pastor's salary. 

In May 1944 the church moved to the present location which is about two-hundred 
fifty yards from the original meeting place. The church was moved down Hardee Street. 
One Sunday the members met with the church in the middle of the street. Soon after 
moving the frame building it was bricked. 

In 1947 the church installed the rotating deacon system, a heating system and par- 
ticipated in the "Tither's Prove Me Campaign." 

In 1948 progress was still to be realized. A lot adjacent to the church was pur- 
chased on which a parsonage was built. A mimeograph machine was soon obtained as 
one of the first pieces of ofiice equipment. For the first time offering envelopes were pro- 
vided for all members. 

During a conference held on October 6, 1948, the church voted to apply for mem- 
bership in the new Yates Baptist Association and upon application were received. 

Greatest growth of the church numerically and financially was realized during the 
ministry of the Reverend James L. Pollard, who served from September 1952 until 
January 1958. With this growth it became necessary to expand the physical facilities. 



30 



Fourteenth Annual Session 



In April of 19 '5 3 the church voted to begin construction of an Educational Building 
which was completed in October 1953. 

In 1954 a new carpet was laid in the Sanctuary, a Brotherhood was organized, the 
W.M.U. was organized into Circles and the Auxiliaries of the W.M.U. were organized 
for the first time. The following year an electronic organ was purchased. 

More office equipment was purchased in 1956. In the same year the W.M.U, 
presented the church with a slide projector. On August 11, 1957, the Church voted to 
buy an adjacent lot for future expansion. The cost was fifteen hundred dollars. 

In the summer of 1962 the Sanctuary was renovated. A baptistry and outside lights 
were installed. Mr. Virgil Petty served as Chairman of the Committee during the reno- 
^■ation. At the annual Homecoming on October 7, 1962 the Sanctuary was rededicated to 
the Lord's cause. 

Pastors who have served the church are as follows: Charles R. Pierce from March, 
1943 to October, 1943, M. F. Scott from March, 1944 to July, 1945, T. W. McKneely 
from November, 1945 to November, 1947; M. F. Scott from May, 1948 to December, 
19505 W. H. Moore from April, 1951 to June, 1952, James L. Pollard from September, 
1952 to Januarv, 1958, E. Dale Davis from April, 1958 to 1959 and E. T. Vinson, 
October, 195 9-. 

As the church looks forward to the future, it is with faith that a progressive history 
tvill be realized for the cause of the Master's work.

HISTORY OF HOLLOWAY STREET BAPTIST CHURCH 

Hollowav Street Baptist Church had its beginnings in June, 1941 in a tent revival 
at Flora and Holloway Streets sponsored by the Durham Baptist Council with the 
Reverend B. E. Morris in charge. Seventy-one people organized the Church at the close 
of the meeting on July 13, 194 1. M. O. Tyndall was elected the first deacon, and Z. B. 
Teel, Sr. was called as first pastor in August. 

That Fall the Church was granted membership in the Mount Zion Baptist 
Association. Services that first winter were held in the Holloway Street School build- 
ing. In December, a Fact-Finding Committee recommended constructing an educational 
building on the present site at Flora, Holloway and xA-lma Streets. Work started in 
January, and in 1942 the basement of this building was occupied. The congregation 
moved to the main floor and observed its first anniversary the second Sunday in July, 
1942. 

The first revival was held in the third week of September, 1942, with 13 candidates 
for baptism, one of whom was Rachel Kerr (now Mrs. Sammy James), who with her 
husband is a missionary now to South Vietnam. A Sunday School was started the first 
Sunday, with N. K. Hardee as superintendent. The Training Union was organized June 
20, 1943, with Marvin Maynor as Director. The Woman's Missionary Union was 
organized February 5, 1942 at the home of Mrs. Pearl Hall, with Mrs. Z. B. Teel as 
president. A Brotherhood, was formed in August, 1954 with Harvey Collie as president. 

Brother Teel led the church in the construction of the present sanctuary. This was 
begun in the summer of 1948 and the formal opening was held on Sunday, July 16, 
1950. Taking part in this service were the pastor, Rev. Z. B. Teel, Rev. B. E. Morris, 
Rex. Oren Bradley, Dr. M. A. Huggins, Rev. H. B. Anderson and Rev. J. Winston 
Pea roe.

A Church Library was started in November, 1951. Today there arc some 736 ho(.)ks 
available. 

Brother Teel remained as pastor until his retirement the last Sunday in July, 19 s 3- 
Rev. Jack B. Wilder was called and started his ministry on September 6 of that year. A 
few weeks prior to his coming- a pastorium was purchased at 1933 Wake Forest High- 
way. Reverend Wilder and his family resided here until March, 1958, when the Church 
purchased the property at 1006 First Avenue and sold the other house. 

The Church called the Reverend Harold Kirkland, a student at Southeastern Semi- 
nary, as its first Minister of Music (later Associate Pastor) and he remained until 
September 9, 1956. The next Spring- the Church purchased a Baldwin organ. During 
this time he organized five g-raded choirs. Other ministers of music up until the present 
staff have been: Gene Neely, September, 1956-August, 1957, Jim Grant, September, 1957- 
June, 19585 Charles Clanton, June, 1 95 8-September, 1958, Mrs. Bestelle Hill, Septem- 
ber, 1 9 5 8-September, 1959 and Edward Lehman, Jr., October, 1959-August, i960. 

In September, 1956 Mrs. Anne Stone, a Wake Forest graduate, came as the Church's 
first Director of Religious Education and Secretary and remained until November 29, 
1957. Miss Violet Overton came one w^eek later as Educational Director and remained 
until July, i 960. 

In July, 1954 property was purchased at 910 Alma Street for the \\)ung People's 
Sunday School Department and the Royal Ambassadors. In August, 1955, property at 
914 Alma Street was also purchased which is being used as a home for the Church's 
Minister of Music and Youth. 

On July 23, 1956 the Church approved plans for a new auditorium and educational 
building, and one year later plans were approved to build the educational building at an 
approximate cost of $100,000. On October 16, 1957 the contract was let and six months 
later it was voted to add air-conditioning. 

On April 9, 1958, the Church voted to sponsor a Mission in the Glenn School area. 
A two-week revival was held under the same tent as used by the HoUoway Street Bap- 
tist Church in its beginning, and the Ferrell Road Mission was organized with 28 mem- 
bers. Mr. Tyson Kirk was named as its first Director and he served until July, 1958 
when Hunter Hobgood was elected as its first Pastor. The Woman's Missionary Union 
of Holloway Street organized a Circle at the Mission on October 15, 1958 with Mrs. 
Margie Belcher as first president. Property as purchased on Ferrell Road and the Mis- 
sion met in this house until it became too small. It was then sold and the congregation 
moved to the Glenn School, until more adequate quarters could be located. In May, 
1959 the Mission purchased approximatelv five acres of land at the intersection of Glenn 
School Road and Glenn Road for $7,500. A $30,000 building was erected at this 
location and upon completion the Mission was named, "Fieldcrest Baptist Chapel." Re\-. 
Hunter G. Hobgood continued as pastor until February 26, 1961. l^pon his resignation, 
Dr. Thomas A. Bland was called to serve as Interim Pastor. Rev. Harvey Beeler, a 
Southeastern Seminary student, came as Minister on the first Sunday in July, 1961 and 
continues to the present. At present there are approximately 80 members. 

The Woman's Missionary Union of Holloway Street Church held its first Corona- 
tion Service on November 19, 1959 and Ylanza Daniel was crowned the first G.A. Queen. 

Rev. Wilder served as pastor until August i960. During the seven years he served, 
the congregation more than doubled in size, growing from about 400 members to about 
850. 

Upon the resignation of Rev. Wilder, the Church was then without a Minister of 
Music, Educational Director, or Pastor, so it was decided to secure a pastor first, and 



32 



Fourteenth Annual Session 



then proceed with the plans for a permanent staff member to serve as combined Minister 
of Music-Educational Director. Rev. George Hill, one of the Church's own members, 
was elected to serve as temporary Minister of Music in August i960 and he remained 
in this capacity for one year. On September 14, i960, Dr. Thomas A. Bland was called 
as Interim Pastor and led the Church through February, 1961, then moved to the Mis- 
sion to serve as Interim Pastor there. 

Our present pastor, the Reverend W. Frank Marks, came the first Sunday in March 
1961 On August 27, 1961 Albert Leath came as Minister of Music and Youth. 

Under the leadership of Messrs. Marks and Leath, the Church continues to progress. 
On May 16, 1962 the Church adopted a recreation program and a Christian Recreation 
Committee was elected to set up this program and carry it out. 

Within its brief history the Church has ordained eight ministers: Warren Kerr, E. F. 
McLean, Ted G. Stone, James Leland Pollard, Bobby Van Seagroves, Ralph E. Holt, 
Hunter G. Hobgood and George Hill.

pulpit furniture g-iven; Carrboro adopted new Constitution and By-laws, Berea called a 
Pastor and began having- Sunday evening services, Grace paved their parking lot, Dur- 
ham Memorial and Carrboro started Educational Buildings, Park Vieiv purchased a 
pastorium, Loive's Groove air-conditioned their sanctuary. Mount Herman relocated and 
moved to a new building and church site one-half mile from their old location. 

Surely everyone in our Association rejoices with the following churches who reported 
spiritual advances: Faith licensed two ministers j Westivood ordained one minister and 
Ridgecrest had three people to dedicate themselves to full time Christian vocations.

REPORT OF ASSOGIATIONAL BOARD 

Your Associational Board has met regularly during the year as follows: November 
21, 1961-Watts St. Baptist Church, January 16, 1962-Carrboro Baptist Church, May 15, 
1962-Watts Street Baptist Church, September 11, 1 962-Plainview Baptist Church, 
October 16, 1962 at Olive Branch Baptist Church. 

The attendance has continued to increase with the largest attendance at the May 
i5-'62 and the September ii-'62 meetings. We hope that for the coming year we will 
have even better representation from the churches at these Board Meetings. We would 
urge that all the churches realize that attendance of Board members is needed if we are 
to properly function. 

Interim Elections and Appointjnents 

November 21, 1962 Meeting — Approving a report of special Nominating Committee. 
The following five men were elected to serve on the Executive Committee for the past 
year: Rev. Warren Carr, Rev. Hayne Rivers, Gordon Pope, R. E. Broughton and J. 
Marvin Franklin. The Moderator appointed Rev. Dennis W. Hockaday as Chariman, 
Rev. Victor S. Dowd and Dr. John Cheek to contact the Durham Ministerial Association 
concerning a Watts Hospital Chaplain as recommended by the Long Range Planning 
Committee. At this meeting the Moderator also appointed the following to the Baptist 
Builders Committee: W. W. Sprouse, Chairman, Charles Billings, Ralph Cooke, W. E. 
Stanley and Rev. J. H. Bunn for the past year. 

At the January 16, 1962 meeting the Moderator appointed Rev. V. S. Dowd, Chair- 
man} Rev. Fred Barnes, Carey C. Cole, Irving Porterfield, and Edwin Ball to the Com-

Fourteenth Annual Session 



Committees 

Much of the work of the Association is done by the various special and standing- 
committees. With this in mind we put special emphasis on committee reports at our May 
15, 1962 meeting^. We heard reports from 17 of these groups with reference to ( i ,) 
What they have accomplished to date and (2) Their plans for sJie balance of the year. 
I believe that the committee reports this year will indicate some real progress and I 
would like to thank each committee member for a job well done this year. In order that 
the Moderator and the Associational office might do a more constructive job this year 
Ave asked each committee to forward to the Associational office a copy of all meeting's of 
each committee. The response has been most gratifying. The Extension Committee needs 
your assistance to complete the survey of the North of Chapel Hill Area. An excellent 
job has been done in maping the Area, and the chairman has made appeals for workers 
to complete the canvas on several dates. The information has already revealed a larg-e 
number of unchurched families in this area. I want to urge you at the next opportunity 
to respond for this task. If we fail to complete the job, unsaved and Baptist people at our 
door steps may never be reached. Yes, Foreign Missions are a must, but we are told to 
beg-in at Jerusalem. 

Getieral 

At our last annual meeting- on motion of Dr. Henry E. Turlington, the Board was 
asked to review the Action of the Association with reference to the Binkley Memorial 
Church. This was done at our Sept. 11, 1962 meeting. Dr. Turlington and Mr. H. C. 
Bradshaw, Chairman of the Special Study Committee were given all the time necessary 
to present the different view points on this matter. The board is indebted to these men 
for an excellent presentation of the facts. After thorough discussion the Board voted (68 
to 13) to reaffirm the recommendation of the Special Study Committee made in 1960 
and approved by the Association at that time.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MISSIONS 

We come to the end of another vear with those things that have given us encourage- 
ment g-reatly outweig-hting those things that have given us discouragement. It seems 
we must always have both. 

My crowded schedule has been largely responsible for our inability to complete the 
survey north of Chapel Hill. It is niv hope that we can finish it before Christmas, time 
will tell! 

As usual our income last year did not match our financial needs. For several years the 
Assembly Grounds Committee has been forced to raise money from individuals occasion- 
ally to improve the property. Within the past weeks we had to lose 23.3 acres of land 
adjoining the g-rounds because we did not have the money available. 

The Extension Committee is always hampered by the lack of money. We seem to feel 
that we must not accumulate money or buy property until we are ready to start another 
church. What a fallacy! If we accumulate any sizable amount of money some of our 
people are apt to raise their eyebrows and say, "Why I thought we were short of 
money!" The accumulation of money beyond our obligations is our objective, in order 
to speed up our whole expansion process. If we had raised our budget last year we 
could, at this inoment, give the propertv on Carver Street to Homestead Heights Baptist 



Yates Baptist Association 



35 



Church without our having to borrow money on an open note, and without their hav- 
\no; to borrow all the i 3,000 from the State Convention. If we had raised our budget 
last year we could put money in an expansion fund this year in preparation for buying 
land in Parkwood. 

Is not our biggest obstacle a lack of faith in each other and in the Lordr 

Another obstacle to progress is our tendency to shy away from standards, methods, 
principles! We are reluctant to accept these when they come from outside our churches, 
outside our association. We accept standards from our banks, our stores, our schools, our 
law-enforcement agencies, our government, but not for our churches, or the activities 
within our churches. "We are autonomous," we cry. 

If we do not need as much emphasis upon standards and methods in our churches, 
why is it so difficult to find folks who are able and willing to stand up and tell others 
"how to do itr" In trying to get associational leadership during the year, we ran into 
road-blocks. In trying to get a teacher for the Brotherhood Guidebook in our central 
school last week, as an illustration, our state leaders could suggest only three or four 
men from Manteo to Murphy. Why? 

If we would accept a few more suggestions that come out of Nashville, Memphis and 
Raleigh that have actually come from the grassroots, and spend less time criticizing 
what our denomination has to offer we would make more Progress. 

My heart goes out to our pastors and other staff members. In so many cases in our 
association thev are under-paid. A 3% increase in financial benefits is necessary every 
year to keep up with the cost of living. A pastor who does not receive an increase, 
receives a cut. On the other hand a church that starves its staff hurts its own reputation. 
I can name churches in this association that are liberal and shower their pastors with 
expressions of love, I can name other churches that keep pastoral "expenses" at an irre- 
ducible minimum, that never remember birthdays, anniversaries, etc., and ignorantlv 
go on year after year gi\ing no evidence of love. 

Do you know how many churches in Vates Association have not entered the South- 
ern Baptist Protection Plan for their staff iiiembersr We no longer ask the church to 
pay one-half and the pastor one-half. We no longer ask for an amount equivalent to 
of salary from both — a total of 10%. The church pays it all — as much as it wants, 
as little as it wants. There are only about three of our churches that should hesitate to 
put in as little as $ ioo a year in the budget. Most of our churches could and should put 
in > 300-^400 and up. Why don't our churches do it: 

My heart goes out to our pastors in another way. In this present day the average 
pastor can give most of his time to reading his Bible, and other books to keep him up 
to date. He can give most of his time to visiting, to counseling, to administration, to 
teaching. He cannot do it all. He therefore is a bottleneck to progress unless he will 
and can delegate authority and responsibility. Sometimes he -zvi// not and sometimes 
he cannot. Sometimes he -n./// not because of insecurity, sometimes he cannot because 
church members will not assume their part of the load. Pastors must be more diligent in 
enlisting lay-people and then give them the opportunity to succeed or fail. Growth 
comes through this process. 

Whenever there is a breakdown in visitation, attendance at worship, witnessing, 
communications, teaching, training, even attendance at worthwhile associational meet- 
ings, there is a bottle-neck. 

I suppose it is trite to say that we have been going through a difficult transition, we 
are always doing that it seems. But look at the growh we have had in the member- 
ship of our church organizations during the last few years. As an illustration we had 



36 



Fourteenth Annual Session 



Y2% increase in Sunday School enrolment from 1959-1961. During the last two years 
the Royal Ambassador and Brotherhood programs have hit bottom. Of course there 
have been good reasons for this, Training Union and Woman's Missionary Union have 
made only slight progress. 

We want to commend Mrs. H. L. Page, Cedar Fork Chyrch, and our Training 
Union department for the marvelous pageant on Matthew Tyson Yates that was 
presented this year. We plan to print several hundred copies of this pageant and dis- 
tribute them to the churches. 

Many things have worried us during the last year, but a new day seems to be 
dawning. 

We are enlisting stronger leadership in our association. Our financial structure will 
hit a new high in 1963. We have a more comprehensive budget, set up on the calendar 
basis, and we have a better chance of reaching it. 

We foresee a tremendous upsurge of interest in our Assembly Grounds. More and 
more people are catching the idea behind it. The name will probably be changed. 
Facilities will be added. Organized camps may be held next summer in tents. We 
prophesy that the first building will be started in comparatively few months. Starting 
a building fund for that purpose is a big step. Instead of "wait and see" we will soon 
say "Come and see!" We also prophesy that in a few months a building fund for 
church expansion will also be launched. 

There are plenty of people with plenty of money in our midst. We can expect 
individual contributions to increase in the coming months and years. The Baptist 
Builders treasury is the channel through which individuals can give undesignated funds 
or give for specified objects. Thousands of dollars are also being lost for the cause of 
Christ in general and our own associational missions program in particular because we 
have not pointed out to our people the possibility of stewardship after death through 
wills. 

We made real progress in our associational Sunday School organization last year and 
twelve churches had special meetings with associational officers in charge. We are 
anticipating the best year yet in 1963. Now that all the materials for the new Royal 
Ambassador program are available we expect an upswing in the number of units and 
enrolment in this organization. The big obstacle is lack of leadership. Most of our 
churches still need Manpower Surveys to discover these potential leaders. 

During the past 8/^ years we have gradually accumulated a fine array of equipment 
in the associational office. They save us hours and hours of time. Remember they be- 
long to the churches of the Yates Baptist Association ! The latest item is an overhead 
projector which we will use at the Loyalty Dinner tonight. Let us know when we can 
help you! 

In the promotion of our associational program we shall be using more and more 
audio-visual aids. Do not miss the report of the Audio-Visual Aids Committee and find 
out the number of slides, filmstrips that we have, and especially the number of times 
they have been used during the past year. Within a few days we shall announce some 
additional sets of slides we have made ourselves. 

On February 4, 1963 we shall finish nine years in the Yates Association. In three 
and one-half years we will have served as long as associational missionaries as we did 
previously in the pastorate. 

These nine years have provided rare experiences. "We could write a book!" About 
100 pastors have come and gone! Our budget has jumped from about $8,000 to 
$33,000. We have become better organized, our constitution has been revised three or 



Yates Baptist Association

four times. We have more committees and most of them are functioning-. Missions and 
churches have been started. 

Our Evang-elism Committee encountered, it seems, insurmountable obstacles last 
spring- in trying to have simultaneous revivals, but simultaneous efforts are scheduled 
ag-ain for 1963 and 1964. We do hope that a larg-e percentage of our churches will 
participate. However, we are interested far more in perennial evangelism, in enlisting 
our people in witnessing week after week. Let us be much in prayer that we may have 
a definite revival in interest in this basic form of evangelism. As church leaders let us 
practice what we preach. Let us spend more time with open Bibles and unsaved souls!

REPORT OF AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS COMMITTEE 

Significant advances have been made in the Audio-Visual Aids field in Yates Asso- 
ciation this year. A program of providing equipment and materials to the Association's 
churches was officially begun in 1958. The work has grown steadily since then. Major 
accomplishments have been made in the past year. Following is a list showing the 
work of the committee for the year 1961-62: 

1. Organized and expanded the Association's filmstrip library. 

2. Published, in October 1961, a catalog of all equipment and materials available 
through the Associational office. Two supplements to the catalog, listing new 
materials added to the library, have also been published. 

3. Advised with or assisted 6 churches in the Association, one in another association 
and one of another denomination in the purchase of audio-visual equipment. 

4. Made available, through the Associational office, to the churches 4 motion pictures 
and 26 filmstrips for use during the "Schools of Missions" week. 

5. Published two Audio-Visual bulletins listing materials available for use during 
weeks of special emphasis. 

6. Transferred disc-recorded scripts for 8 filmstrips to tape recordings, enabling 
wider use of recorded scripts. 

7. Produced a slide-program on the Assembly Grounds. 

8. Laid the ground-work for a four night Audio-Visual Clinic to be held on 
February 18, 19, 22, 23, 1963 at Grace Baptist Church. 

9. Added to the Association owned equipment one Thermo-fax portable overhead 
projector. 

10. Conducted i training session in the operation of equipment. 

11. Conducted 2 Associational conferences and 3 local church conferences on Audio- 
Visual Aids. 

At the present time the Association's Audio-Visual Library consist of the following 
equipment and materials: 

I — 16 mm Motion Picture Projector 

1 — Viewlex slide-filmstrip projector with a simi-automatic slide changer 

2 — 70" X 70" screens 

I — portable projector stand 

I — small opaque projector 

I — Thermo-fax portable overhead projector 

191 filmstrips with printed manuals 

XI — 3 3-1/3 ^P"^ disc-recorded scripts 



38 



Fourteenth Annual Session 



8 — tape-recorded scripts (3*^4 ips ) 
24 — sets of slides 
I — motion picture 

3 — tape-recorded messag-es of miscellaneous nature. 

Since this library has g'rown from two pieces of eq^jipirient and about 5^^ 

filmstrips to the present library listed above. The Committee is pleased to report that 
the publication of the catalof,'- has tended to g-reatly increase the use of both equipment 
and materials in the churches. We believe that the system of cataloging- and maklng^ 
reservation of equipment and materials which we have devised is an effective one. It 
will make possible a complete report next year on the number of times materials wert- 
used during the year. We ha\-e been able to asseiTible a partial report for this year. 

Our present systen) of reservations and check-out was set up in April. Since that 
that time we have an accurate record on the use of materials. To the present time the 
filmstrips, slide sets and motion picture have been checked out 226 times. The motion 
picture projector has been used 25 times and tlie slide-filmstrip projector 28 times. This 
is the record for the past 6 months. We estiiTiate that from October i, 1961 throug-h 
March 3r, 1962 at least 175 reservations were made, including- those made for the 
special gruop of materials made available during- the "Schools of Missions" week. We 
have been most fortunate in that we have had to replace onlv 2 filmstrips torn or 
damaged because of inadequate or untrained operators. 

Realizing that many churches desiring to use both equipment and materials conflicts 
in schedule and use would arise, the committee adopted the following policies at its 
June meeting: 

1. All Autlio-Visual equipment owned by the Association shall be made available 
to the churches of the Association, rental free, on a reservation basis. 

2. The use of this equipment shall be limited to the churches of the Association. 

3. All reservations shall be made in person or by telephone with the Associational 
office. Exception is made for cases wherein special emphasis, such as Schools of 
Missions, Weeks of Prayer, etc., may require special procedures for reservations. 
In such cases plans will be published by the committee for reservation procedure. 

4. The churches may reserve equipment for as iriany days as desired or needed, ex- 
cept during the weeks of special emphasis such as V.B.S., Weeks of Prayer, S.S. 
Preparation Week, Central Training'- Schools, etc., during which reservations will 
be accepted for only i day from each church. This policy is deemed necessary 
since the great majority of the churches do not own projectors and depend upon 
the Associational owned equipment. 

5. The churches, or responsible individuals, will be expected to report to the Asso- 
ciational office any malfunction or difficulty in use of equipment or damaged 
equipment or materials in order that proper repairs may be made before next 
user's reservation. 

6. The expense of repairs and up-keep of equipment and materials will be borne by 
the Association as a part of the service to the churches. 

7. The churches will be expected to see that equipment and materials are returned 
to the associational office before i p.m. on the day following use. 

This statement of policy will appear in the next edition of the catalog which we 
hope will appear in 1963. 



Yates Baptist Association 



39 



Your Committee continues to recommend that every church in the Association elect 
an Audio-Visual Director to co-ordinate the use of Audio-Visual Aids in the programs 
of the churches and to train qualified operators of the equipment. We urge the continued 
used of the materials available through the Association. In addition, we call attention 
to the fact that a large library of rental free Audio-Visual materials is maintained in the 
North Carolina Baptist State Convention's Department of Program Services, 301 Hills- 
boro Sreet, Raleigh. Catalogs are avaliable from the Department and reservations are 
made direct with the Department of Program Services. 

The Committee commends the churches now maintaining a specialized ministry to 
"shut-in" and "shut-out" persons in their communities through tape-recorded services 
and messages. So far as we have been able to ascertain, there are 1 i churches with such 
a ministry reaching approximately 300 persons weekly in homes and institutions within 
the Association. 

Your committee stands ready to be of ser\ice to the churches in an advisory capacity 
in the selection and purchase of Audio-Visual Aids and materials. 

Respectfullv submitted,

REPORT OF ORDINATIONS COMMITTEE 

During the vear the following were examined and approved for ordination: Dewitt 
W. Branch of Grey Stone, Louis McMannen of Faith, Maurice Hancock of Temple, and 
Charles Hulin of Durham Memorial. 

The Committee was composed of Reverend Tom Roberts, Chairman, Reverend 
James Roberts and Reverend Ray Hodge. The Chairman accepted work in Virginia 
after 1 i months and Brother Hodge was appointed to fill the unexpired term. 

The Ordinations Committee has recommended a constitutional change affecting this 
committee which will be acted upon at this session. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF EXTENSION COMMITTEE 

Your Extension Committee has had before it four primary tasks during the last 
year: (i) The assistance in the organization of the Homestead Heights Baptist Church, 
(2) Consideration of the Parkwood area for a possible mission site, (3 ) Completion of 
the census of the Airport area in the northern section of Chapel Hill, and (4) A study 
of procedures and relationships between this Committee, the Association and local 
churches. 

(0 Hojuesiead Heights Baptist Church 

At the request of the Grace Baptist Church, the Extension Committee assisted 
in the organization of the Carver Street Mission into the Homestead Heights Baptist 
Church on March 4, 1962. 

This group seems to have planned carefully for the responsibility of being a church 
and we feel it will contribute much to the oncoming of the Kingdom of God. 

(2) Parkivood 

The matter of the possible purchasing of property for a mission site in Park- 
wood near the Research Triangle is still unsettled. This Committee has adopted a 
"go-slow" policy for the time being for the following reasons: 



40 



Fourteenth Annual Session 



a. Lowe's Grove Baptist Church is at present adequately caring for the Baptist 
needs there. 

b. The shopping center area, where the site is to be located, is not yet developed 
as planned. 

c. A lot there will cost about $14,000. We consider this high and there is other 
land available nearby. 

d. There is evidence that some of these families are unsettled and are returning 
north. 

e. The budget of the Association does not now permit such a purchase. 

The Extension Committee is maintaining contact with the area and the 
churches now serving it. We stand ready to move if conditions recommend it. 

(3) f^orth of ChafeL Hill 

The Association last year began a survey of the North of Chapel Hill Area, and 
around the airport. This survey is now being completed and we will make available 
the findings to interested churches. 

(4) Procedures 

During the past year this Committee has given much time to the consideration 
of its relationship to the local churches and to the Association. As a result of these 
discussions we have suggested the following plan for the carrying out of the duties 
of the Extension Committee. We feel that each member of the Extension Committee 
should represent an area of the Association and the churchs located in that area. 
Each committee member will seek to maintain a close working relationship with each 
of the churches in his area. He shall assist in evaluating the mission needs with each 
of the churches. Wherever possible, the Committee would like for the initiative in 
any new work to begin with a group of churches. The Extension Committee stands 
ready to assist any church or groups of churches in evaluating the mission potential 
of any given area of our Association. The initiative should rest with the local church 
but before a mission is established, the Extension Committee should be asked to help 
coordinate the efforts of the churches in a given area, so that all of the churches will 
work together in the establishment of a new work. 
The Extension Committee has two recommendations to make: 

1. That the above outlined plans under (4) be accepted as the working procedure 
for the Extension Committee for a one year trial basis. 

2. That the Homestead Heights Baptist Church be received under watchcare of the 
Yates Baptist Association. ^

REPORT OF ASSEMBLY GROUNDS COMMITTEE 

Any report by the Assembly Grounds Committee must include, directly or indirectly, 
a discussion on recreation. This subject is becoming- more and more important. At the 
present time an out-door recreation bill is being- studied by Congress, A Congressional 
Committee made a study and presented its findings on out-door recreation. President 
Kennedy is asking 500 million dollars to buy useable lands for this purpose. More 
money will be needed in the years ahead. This Committee's report, "The Outdoor 
Recreation Resource Commission (ORRC)" has predicted that by the year 1980, the 
recreation needs of our people will be 39 times greater than it is today. Already a 
bureau of Outdoor recreation has been set up in the Department of Interior to study 
and carry out this plan. 

Recreation is not limited to the sports only. Rather, it may include hiking, camping 
and even pleasure riding. With the proper definition of the term in mind, our Asso- 
ciation Assembly Grounds offers our people a perfect opportunity for getting away from 
the strain of life into the peaceful surroundings of God's great out-of-doors. The area 
should offer facilities for study and discussion groups, supper forums, retreats and recrea- 
tion activities. 

In the proposed master plan for the Assembly Grounds facilities are included to meet 
every need of our Association for large and small groups in an assembly environment. 
Our Association used great foresight in purchasing land for the recreation needs of 
our people. 

Let us review some of our Committee's work this year! 

1. Professor Charlie Stott of State College, professional camp planner, was invited 
to the first meeting to explain the master plan again for the sake of the new members 
of the committee, 

2. The banks of the pond have been cleared of debris, growth and silt, 

3. Floor plans for a second permanent building have been drawn up for consideration, 

4. A promotion committee has been formed to publicize the present and proposed 
facilities and encourage additional financial support through printed materials, audio- 
visual programs and personal contacts, 

5. On June 14 through July 3 a "Summer Program of Supervised Activities" was 
offered to the churches of the Association with a few groups participating. 

6. Sub-committees have been formed pertaining to the road maintenance, building 
floor plans, nature trails, landscape and Master Plan priorities. 

7. The road and entrance has been reworked to make the area accessible and beau- 
tiful. 

8. On June 4 a joint meeting was held with the Finance Committee to discuss the 
possible purchase of 23,3 acres adjoining the Assembly Grounds. It was decided to raise 
the existing bid by other interested parties by 5% and try to purchase the property at 
a reasonable figure. Since then the property was sold at auction for $5,400., but our 
men did not feel they could go further than that figure. 

9. The Committee has concentrated on acquiring another caretaker, and perfecting 
long-range plans for putting facilities on our present 55 acres. In preparation for the 
coming of a new caretaker the committee has adopted tentatively a general working 
agreement. Rules and regulations for the use of the Grounds are being work out and 
will be publicized through the mail and on the Assembly Grounds. Reservations for the 
use of the Grounds will be made through the Associational office. The reservations will 
be confirmed through the mail with a copy of the rules and regulations being enclosed. 



42 



Fourteenth Annual Session 



lo. On October 16 the following recommendations were brought to the Board and 
approved for presentation at the i\nnual Session, (i) That $1,000 be taken from the 
1961-62 budget and placed in the building fund along with $5.00 given by an individ- 
ual, (2) that $5,000 be placed in the Associational budget for 1963 for a building fund 
looking toward the erection of a first building with cooking and overnight facilities, and 
that the Association look with favor upon continuing this practice in the future, (3) 
that the churches be asked to contribute amounts designated for the x'\ssembly Grounds 
(either through their budgets or through special offerings) above and beyond their 
support for the regular x^ssociational Program. 

Although the Assembly Grounds Committee has made definite strides forward, the 
development of this area will rest in the hands of each individual and church in our 
Association.

REPORT OF GOiMMITTEE ON EVANGELISM 

The Committee on Evangelism request that each church intensify their efforts to 
win the lost this coming year to Christ. The Committee on Evangelism is also conscious 
that we have a tremendous responsibility to those who have already been won to Christ. 

Therefore, your Committee recommends a two-fold plan for this coming year, (i) 
We request that every means at your disposal be used in winning others to Christ. The 
Sunday School has always been one of the most valuable tools for winning the lost that 
God has given to us. We trust that each church utilize their Sunday School facilities to 
the maximum extent in this means of winning others to Christ. (2) We request that 
the churches conscientiously strive to have a church roll with as few of non-resident 
members as possible. This cannot be done overnight but needs to be done over a period 
of months and years. For a church to have a given number of members reported and 
a given number of people present indicates a great discrepancy. We request that we do 
all that is possible to eliminate this large non-resident membership, 

Th annual associational workshop will be held January 29 at the Grey Stone Baptist 
Church with Dr. Julian Hopkins and Brother Gary Harthcock in charge. 

Simultaneous Revivals for our association are March 24 to April 7, 1963.

REPORT OF MUSIC MINISTRY 

The Yates Associational Music Committee sponsored two Associational music events 
during the year 1962. The first was an Associational Music Conference held on January 
29 at the Braggtown Baptist Church. This meeting was arranged for the benefit of Choir 
Directors, Accompanists, Pastors and others interested in the Church Music Program. 
The topic of discussion concerned the sources of choral music, especially for the smaller 
choir. Included were illustrations from the Church Musician, the Baptist Hymnal and 
samples of one, two, three and four part music.

A Hymn Sing was held on June 24 at Guess Road Baptist Church with approximately 
1 00 people in attendance, including two choirs. The general theme was "The Attributes 
of God" and the service was led by local church musicians and members of the Asso- 
ciational Committee. 

Plans for the year 1963 consist of three activities: a School of Music or Choral 
Clinic on February 11, 12 & 15 at Angier Avenue Church, a Hymn Sing at Gorman 
Church on June 23; and a Music Director's Conference on September 16 at Lowe's 
Grove Church. 

For churches who need information or counsel on matters pertaining to the local 
church music ministry, the Associational Committee is always available to help and 
advise.

STUDENT COMMITTEE REPORT 

Your Student Committee this year has had the privilege of working with the 
Directors of the Baptist Student Union of Duke University and the University of North 
Carolina in the prosecution of a relevant campus ministry to some 2600 Baptist students. 
At this point the work of the Committee has been primarily advisory in that the main 
outlines of the program itself are developed by the Directors in cooperation with the 
staff of the Student Department of our Convention. It is hoped that those responsible 
for the immediate direction of the program have found the Committee of some assistance 
in their work. 

The major project of the Student Committee over the past twelve months has been 
in connection with the construction of the new Baptist Student Center at Duke Uni- 
versity. This facility, located on Alexander Avenue, is one of the most attractive denomi- 
national religious centers to be found on any campus in the state. Our Baptist State 
Convention, through the "Advance Gifts" of the Cooperative Program, provided funds 
in the amount of $80,000 for the construction of this building. Further funds were pro- 
vided for the purchase of furnishings with the hope that local churches and the Yates 
Association would be able to repay these additional funds to the Convention within 
five years. It has been customary in the past for such procedure to be followed. We hope 
that funds for this purpose will be forth coming in the near future. 

On next Sunday, November 4, at 3:00 P.M., this new center will be dedicated as the 
climax of the North Carolina Baptist Student Union Convention meeting here in Dur- 
ham at the Temple Baptist Church. To this service of dedication you are most cordially 
invited. 

Ahead of us lies the need to develop adequate resources for the financial support 
of the campus ministry. In a very real sense of the word, our Association has no greater 
local mission responsibility than that of a relevant ministry to students. In addition to 
support for the local programs, there is the pressing need for a new Student Center at 
the University of North Carolina. The present center is totally inadequate from the 
point of size and location. With some 2000 Baptist students enrolled in the University, 
the need for more adequate facilities is obvious and imperative. 

With our concern focussed upon the campus ministry there is the awareness on the 
part of the Committee of the need to develop understanding of and interest in our 
student ministry on the part of the churches. Few places in North Carolina offer such 
a challenge as does ours in the fact that two significant university centers are located 
within the boundaries of our Yates Association. We have no greater opportunity as

churches and as an Association than the support and encouragement of a relevant 
ministry to these students in our midst. 

REPORT OF SUNDAY SCHOOL 

In several ways we feel we have rendered real service to thcvchurches of Yates Asso- 
ciation this past year. Although we lost a sense of unity in the lack of central meetings, 
we gained much in the "tailor-made" meetings held in twelve churches from January 
through September. The host churches were: Pleasant Hill, Grace, Edgemont, Faith, 
Bells, University, Olive Chapel, Braggtown, Lakewood, Mount Carmel, Mount Gilead 
and Plainview. Similar meetings have been planned in November for Alston Avenue, 
Immanuel, Ridgecrest and Red Mountain. 

These churches have been able to pick the night, the emphasis and the method of 
presentation for these meetings. We have received some excellent reactions. 

We are proud of the Sunday School awards earned during the year in the Central 
School, through class study in the churches and also through Home Study method. But 
we have far to go ! 

During the coming year there will be two conference meetings. Offers will be made 
to the churches to assist them on their regular Sunday School nights. Another Central 
School is planned for the fall. 

In some other ways our record in Sunday School work in Yates Association is most 
disheartening. Too little emphasis is placed upon "standards" and "methods." Some 
say, "Let's get away from talk and studies on methods all the time!" And yet we find 
extreme difficulty in finding individuals in our churches who are qualified to stand up 
and tell others "how to do it." A worker who is not willing to take training is not 
worth having. 

From 1950 to 1955 the Sunday School enrolment increased by 2,707 members which 
meant 13.5 new members per church per year, one new person for every 29.9 S.S. 
members, an average increase of 3^ per year. From 1956 thru 1958 we had an aver- 
age increase of 265 per year or From 1959 thru 1961 we had an average in- 
crease of 103 or ^4%. Are we proud of such a record? The lack of growth in our 
Sunday Schools is caused ( i ) by a lack of interest by our members in enlarging the 
Kingdom through our Sunday Schools, — that is through personal evangelism, and (2) 
by a lack of quality work. 

As long as the Sunday School is the soul-winning arm of the church, it must maintain 
a primary position among the organizations. We must reach, teach, win, and enlist not 
merely to attain goals, but because there are scores of unsaved souls around our churches 
and we should be the bearers of the Good News. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Wayne Nutt 

REPORT OF WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

When thirty-two women from 12 states met in Richmond to organize Woman's 
Missionary Union in 1888, the Preamble of the constitution read: We, the women of 
the churches connected with the Southern Baptist Convention, desirous of stimulating 
the missionary spirit and the grace of giving, among the women and children of the 
churches, and aiding in collecting funds for Missionary purposes, to be disbursed by the 
Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, and disclaiming all intentions of independent 
action, organize and adopt the following constitution. 



Yates Baptist Association 



45 



Through the years the women have been stimulating the missionary spirit and the 
grace of giving among the women and children of our churches. 

In the Yates Association there are 4,224 women and children engaged in missionary 
activities. 

In 45 churches and 2 missions there are 2,485 members in the Woman's Missionary 
societies. There were 7 churches who have advanced societies. They are Durham 
Memorial, Carrboro, Lakewood, HoUoway Street, Temple, Watts Street, and Westwood. 

Those with approved Societies are: Fellowship, Grace, Guess Road, Mt. Carmel, Park 
View, Ridgecrest, Rose of Sharon and University. 

In October 1961 the W.M.S. Leadership course was taught by Miss Miriam Robin- 
son, Executive Secretary of N. C. Seventy-five (75) women received cards of accredita- 
tion. We now have 139 women who have finished the W.M.S. Leadership course. 

In making a survey of the churches, the women feel that the most outstanding thing 
we did for Promotion of Missions was the School of Missions. 

There was one new W.M.U. organized during the year. Homestead Heights W.M.U. 
was organized- March 13th, 1962 with a W.M.S. and a G.A. This year their G.A. is an 
Honor organization. Later a sunbeam band was organized. 

There were 1,502 Mission Study books read with eighty Mission Study classes taught. 
Forty churches engaged in the Five Days of Prayer for Foreign and Home Missions. 

There are 27 Y.W.A. organizations in our churches with 249 members in 25 
churches. We have an active Y.W.A. Council. The President of this Council was sent 
to Ridgecrest by the Association for Y.W.A. Leadership training. We have 3 approved 
Y.W.A.'s and 3 advanced organizations. 

The Girl's Auxiliary has done outstanding work during the year. There are 79 
organizations with 709 members. There were 7 Honor organizations. They are Calvary, 
Braggtown, Holloway Street, Homestead, Lakewood, Temple, and Westwood. There 
are 10 advanced and 11 approved organizations. We have had an increase of 50% 
of organizations. 

The G. A. Leadership course was taught with 45 receiving cards of accreditation. 

For the third year Mrs. Bettie Mae Dickie, our G.A. director, has led a very suc- 
cessful camp. In August at Camp Kanata there were 98 girls in camp. Each day the 
girls had the pleasure of hearing a Missionary. A full day of prayer was observed. 
The girls enjoyed many crafts. 

In commenting on the camp the Missionaries praised the camp for its instruction, the 
art of christian living and the spirit. 

We have 52 Sunbeam organizations with 709 members. There were two new Sun- 
beam Bands organized. They are: Homestead Heights and Hope Valley. 

Eight churches have Sunbeam Nurseries with 38 members. 

The women and children of Yates Association are continuing to promote the Mission- 
ary spirit and the grace of giving as they give, pray, and study that they may be 
"Laborers together with God."

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD 

I can sincerel}^ say that there is a new interest among- our men in Yates Association 
concerning- Brotherhood and Royal Ambassador work. Since we beg-an the new Brother- 
hood and Royal Ambassador programs, men seem to be more anxious to meet the chal- 
lenge through these organizations. At the same time there have been difficult periods. 

Now that all materials of the newly org-anized Brotherhood and Royal Ambassador 
prog-rams are available, we cannot help but believe that God is g"oing to bless us in 
the new year. 

This year we have taken part in the following programs: 

1. The Central School included courses taug-ht by Reverend Clyde Davis and 
Reverend Bill Jackson, state leaders. 

2. The Brotherhood-Ladies Night was held at Temple Church in January with an 
excellent meal, entertainment, and a campfire scene of Royal Ambassador boys as the 
main feature. 

3. In May the program was at Rose of Sharon Church. Emphasis was on the Man- 
power Survey with three different churches bringing the results of surveys. Over 400 
men were found having no place of responsibility. The Brotherhood would like to urge 
each of our churches to make this Manpower Survey and study the results. The speaker 
for this meeting was Dr. Charles Wellborn, 

4. In August a Parent-Boy Day was held. We had our baseball play-off at Durham 
Athletic Park in the afternoon followed that night by a weiner roast, fine entertainment 
(Buzzy Potts, the Clown), the awarding of the trophy and plaque, and the Reverend 
Jack Wilson speaking to our parents and boys on, "Christianity and Sportsmanship." 

5. In the September Workshop meeting, our associational officers led the conferences 
for local Brotherhood officers. The purpose of this workshop was to better inform our 
church officers of their responsibilities in Brotherhood work. Our speaker was Reverend 
Clyde Davis, State Brotherhood Secretary, who brought a great and challenging mes- 
sage. 

We expect our Brotherhood meetings this coming year to be of the highest quality, 
trusting that God will multiply the results and give us a brighter tomorrow in Brother- 
hood and Royal Ambassador work. 

Our Brotherhood Planning Committee recommends that the Association suggest to 
the Brotherhood Department of our Baptist State Convention and to the other Associa- 
tions of Region 4 that representatives of these groups investigate the possibility and ad- 
visability of employing a Regional Brotherhood-Royal Ambassador Leader beginning in 
1964. 

May I in conclusion say personally and on behalf of the Associational Brotherhood 
officers "thank you," for every sincere effort you have made in Brotherhood work this 
past year. If any of the officers can be of any help in your local church, please call on 
us. We are anxious to revive Brotherhood and Royal Ambassador work in our area. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Aubrey Wheeler, President

Fourteenth Annual Session 



REPORT OF FINANCE COMMITTEE 

The Finance Committee has been busy most of the year. 
In the May board meeting- we recommended: 

I. A. that the associational budget be put on the calendar year basis as of 
January i, 1963 j 

B. that the associational board strongly urge the churches to do the same; 

C. that the association continue the present budget, October through Decem- 
ber, and 

D. that the churches continue their present level of giving through December. 
II. A. that the Loyalty Dinner be held each year on the first night (Tuesday) 

of the Annual meeting in October with the budget based upon our needs 
presented for adopting the next morning (Wednesday) ; 

B. that the Mission section of the budget be revised at the January Board 
meeting each year to bring the total budget in line with the actual pledges 
from the churches, and 

C. that the churches be asked to increase their associational committments by 
20% for the year 1963. 

III. A. that the Board suggest to the Homestead Height Baptist Church that it 
borrow from the Baptist State Convention the amount of $3,000.00, and 
B. that the Board itself authorize the borrowing by an open note with in- 
dividual endorsers the balance of the indebtedness (Approx. $3,600.00) 
on the Carver Street property, so that the Homestead Heights Baptist 
Church can have the deed to the property and proceed with its build- 
ing program. 
All of these recommendations were accepted. 

On two occasions our committee has met with the Assembly Grounds Committee in 
discussing the possible purchase of additional property. 

We received a request from the Student Work committee for funds toward the 
furnishings of the new Duke B.S.U. Center. $500 was incorporated in the budget and 
presented to the board at its October meeting. 

We received 1963 budget requests from both the church Extension and Assembly 
Grounds Committees. These were acted upon and also incorporated in the proposed 
budget. 

During the year we have lost J. P. Byars, Z. B. Teel, Jr., and Carey Cole from 
our committee which has hampered our work considerably. 

We have made some real progress during this last year and we trust that 1963 will 
show us reaching new heights.

Board. 

Article 3. Each church shall be represented at the annual meeting of the Associa- 
tion and at any special meeting during the year by messengers who shall be duly

Association by a two-thirds majority of the members present and voting, the church or 
churches shall be received under the watchcare of the Association for a period of one

ship from any church that shall willfully depart from orthodox principles of the 
Christian religion as taught in the Bible and as believed by Baptists, or that fails to 
represent itself either by messenger or by letter at the annual session of the Association 
without sufficient reason, or that fails to support causes fostered by the denomination at 
large and of this Association in particular, or that ceases to be missionar)^ in practice. 

Article 6. Any church may decline to send messengers to the Association at its 
pleasure. Whenever this constitutes a withdrawal of fellowship on the part of the

gradually emerged as a unit of great importance ... the SBC has revamped approaches 
in recognition of this fact . . . Mr. Neil Jackson, a consultant in audio-visual aids 
of the BSSB said . . . weeks ago 'I do not know of another association . , . that offers a 
service to its churches that you folks do in Yates!' When something really succeeds 
it means that some man or woman, besides the Superintendent of Missions, is dedicated 
to some specific task ... we cannot be content with . , . mediocre leadership . . . ; we must 
have your best . . . approaching . . . people . . , two years in advance. A church does 
not make a donation to the association j it makes an investment ... Southern Baptists 
are slowly coming out of an era in which the programs were meeting-centered . , , 
emphasis will be given to personal attention . . . new associational Sunday School 
Standard , . . does not ask for . . . monthly meetings, but suggests , . , meetings to meet 
the needs . . . majored on totals and percentages too long! . . . Personal involvement is 
important . , . Individual, systematic follow-up of new members is increasingly important.

upon the fields. . . ."

HISTORY OF ALSTON AVENUE BAPTIST CHURCH 

On June 19, 19385 under the leadership of the Reverend H. A. Basden, pastor, the 
Alston Avenue Sunday School Gospel Mission was formed with 22 charter members. 
At that time they met in an old service station on Alston Avenue owned by Mr, W. D. 
Wynne. On March 31, 1940 the group was reorg-anized as the Alston Avenue Com- 
munity Church with 22 members. By February of 1941 the congreg-ation had purchased 
their present site and erected their first building on it. On October 8, 1944, the church 
was reorganized again as a Missionary Baptist Church and was accepted into the 
Mount Zion (Yates) Asociation on October 12, with 54 members. Upon Mr. Basden's 
resignation in 1956 the church called the Reverend C. E. Ange as pastor and he served 
until June 30, i960. In December, i960 the church extended a call to its present 
pastor, the Reverend Richard J. Milham. Under his leadership, the church has steadily 
progressed and in 1962 was one of the nine churches in North Carolina to be recognized 
by the Church Development Department of the Baptist State Convention of North 
Carolina for outstanding achievement and this year (1963) is one of four churches 
in the State involved in a special research project for the Baptist Sunday School Board. 
During 1961-63 the Alston Avenue Church has adopted a Constitution and By-Laws, 
started a Brotherhood, Girls' Auxiliary and Royal Ambassadors, and quadrupled its 
membership with 121 additions (51 by baptism). 

On Wednesday, May 9, 1962, by unanimous vote, the membership of Alston Avenue 
agreed to purchase a 7.2 acre tract of land on So-High Drive for $15,000. In 
December, an initial down-payment of $4,000 was made and the balance of $11,000 is 
now being paid off. This land will eventually be the site of a complete new church 
plant which will include a sanctuary, educational buildings, parking areas and recrea- 
tional facilities. This building program will begin as soon as the remaining indebtedness 
on the land is met.

HISTORY OF IMMANUEL BAPTIST CHURCH 

The Immanuel Baptist Church is located on Hillsboro Road just outside the 
city limits. 

On June 30, 1942, a prayer meeting was held at the home of the D. B. 
Oakleys in regard to having the Baptist Council of Durham and Vicinity, Inc. 
place their tent in our community with the idea of organizing a church. Another 
prayer meeting was held at the home of the W. L. Strayhorn, Jrs, on July 1 7, 
1942. Then on July 21, 1942, a committee from the community met at the 
home of the H. A. Fetner, Jrs. with representatives of the Council at which time 
a date was set for the tent revival. The tent was placed on a lot on the corner 
of Wortham and Christian Streets and the meeting started on Sunday afternoon, 



30 



Fifteenth Annual Session 



August 9, 1942, There was inspirational preaching for several weeks by various 
preachers of Durham: Reverends Hemphill, Anderson, Herring, Teel, Morris, 

Marshall and others. 

Then on Sunday, September 6, 1942, at three o'clock in the afternoon, a church 
was organized with seventeen charter members. 

There was no church house and no money to build one. The church was truly 
organized on Faith in God. It would soon be cold weather and we could not hold 
our meetings under the tent because it was in very bad shape, so we were forced to find 
a building in which to meet. A road-house (known as the "Triangle Inn") in the 
community was vacant and this building was rented from Erwin Mills, the owners, 
for use as a church house. During the weeks following, the ladies of the church began 
the task of cleaning out the old building to make ready for the church. The men 
built a pulpit and a pulpit desk. 

On Sunday morning, September 13, 1942, a Sunday School was organized with 
Mr. D. B. Oakley as Superintendent with an enrollment of 57. At the worship service 
one of our boys (first member by baptism) Sammy McBroom, presented a little bag 
containing $2.75 to start a building fund. At the first business meeting of the church, 
a name was selected. Rev. B. E. Morris, President of the Council, suggested the name 
"Immanuel." This name was unanimously adopted. Officers were selected at this 
service. The first deacons were: D. B. Oakley, C. T. Eudy and E. E. Cross, Treasurer, 
W, L. Strayhorn, Jr., Building Committee, C. L. Livingstone, C, L. Whitaker and 

L. Strayhorn, Jr. It was agreed to hold open the list of charter members until the 
end of September, so the charter membership numbered 37. The Reverend F. H. 
Marshall was called as the first pastor. 

The Woman's Missionary Union was organized in 1943 with Mrs. D. B. Oakley, 
president, G. A.'s were organized in June 1958, Brotherhood, 1962, R.A.'s, 1962 and 
Sunbeams, 1963. 

We have continued to grow in number with a present membership of 385. 

The year 1949 was a memorial year in the history of the church. On July 5, 1949 
construction of our church building was begun. During December, 1949, this building 
was completed at a cost of about $40,000,00. The first service was held in the new 
building December 25, 1949 at eleven o'clock. The new furniture was placed in the 
building during February, 1950 and formal opening was held March 5, 1950. 

Rev. Marshall resigned September 12, 1954 and we secured Dr. Earle Bradley as 
Interim pastor. 

Rev. Ralph Yarborough was called as pastor in January, 1955. 

In October, 1955, property was purchased just off Cole Mill Road for the parsonage. 
We started it in May, 1956 and our pastor moved into it in August. 

The Church sponsored the Boy Scout Troop in June, 1957, with Mr. Ed Brady as 
Scout Master. The Scouts, with the help of the church, began the construction of a 
recreation cabin behind the church in October, 1957. 

Upon the resignation of Reverend Yarborough in January, i960, we again secured 
Dr. Bradley as Interim pastor. 

r Our present pastor. Reverend J. C. Joyner began his pastorate in June, i960. The 
Forward Program of Church Finance was started in October, i960. 

In April, 1961, a parking lot was cleared behind the church. In July, 1961, the 
Nursery department was air conditioned. The debt on the church was paid oflF in 
October, 1961.

During 1962 and 1963 the church bought some very badly needed equipment, a 
Movie Projector and Film Strip Projector in June, Boy Scout Equipment in August, 
a Tape Recorder in February, 1963, a Typewriter for pastor's study, a Piano for the 
Sanctuary, and a Mimeograph Machine. 

We would express our sincere thanks to God for His goodness to us. It was through 
the goodness and mercy of God that we have accomplished this task. Our prayers are 
that He will continue to bless our efforts in His behalf and to care for us.

REPORT OF ASSOGIATIONAL BOARD 

Your Associational Board has met regularly during the year as follows: November 
20, I962' — Lakewood Baptist Church, January 15, 1963^ — -Duke University Baptist 
Student Union Center, May 14, 1963 — 'Westwood Baptist Church, June 25, 1963— 
Holloway Street Baptist Church, July 23, 1963— Cheek Heights Baptist Church, Septem- 
ber 10, 1963 — Cheek Heights Baptist Church, October 15, 1963 — -Park View Baptist 
Church. 

The attendance has been good, with the largest attendance at our mid-year meeting 
at Westwood when we again asked for written reports from all committees and 
organizations. We urge each church to elect Board members who will be regular in 
attendance in order that your church may be informed and contribute to the work of 
the Board. 

Interim Elections and A ff ointments 

November 20, 1962, Meeting — -Approved a report of Special Nominating Committee. 
The following five men were elected to serve on the Executvie Committee for the 
past year: O. A. Johnson, Gordon Pope, Dr. John Freeman, Ray Hodge and Dr. Henry 
Turlington. 

January 15, 1963 Meeting — -The Moderator appointed the following to the 
Committee on Committees for 1963: Rev. B. E. White, Chairman, O. A. Johnson, Rev. 
Donald Cooper, H. W. Pickett, Jr. and H. L. Ferguson. In accordance with a motion 
passed at our Annual Session, the Moderator appointed the following special committee 
on Interracial Affairs to recommend plans for the Baptist Jubilee Year in 1964: Rev. 
W. R. Pursell, Chairman, Rev. B. E. White, D. J. Booth and Norman Goss. During 
the year our office secretary, Mrs. Marion Crutchfield, resigned to take other work, and 
Mrs. Emily Warren was employed to fill this position. She is well known in Durham, 
having served as financial secretary for several of our churches. We are fortunate to 
have secured her services. 

Finance 

On recommendation of the Finance Committee, the Board approved requests for 
aid from the State Mission Board for Fieldcrest Mission, supplement to pastor's salary 
$520, and for the Homestead Baptist Church for $2500 to apply toward the purchase 
price of a new church site. In accordance with action of the Association last year, at 
our January meeting the 1963 Budget was revised, so that for the first time we have 
operated on a realistic budget and in line with pledges from the churches. The Finance 
Committee recommended that we adopt a plan of financing for the assembly grounds 
with the slogan "A Quarter Per Quarter." It is believed that this could raise $30,000 
per year for the expansion of the assembly grounds. The Finance Committee recom- 



32 



Fifteenth Annual Session 



mended the purchase of 27.6 acres adjacent to the assembly grounds, which gives us 
approximately 82 acres for development. Both of these items came as a recommendation 
of the Assembly Grounds Committee to the Finance Committee. 

ConiTnittees 

The real work of the Association is done by the various special and standing- 
committees. For the past two years we have asked all committees to send copy of 
their minutes to the Association office and to the Moderator. The Assembly Grounds 
Committee and the Church Extension Committee have done an outstanding job in this 
respect. I would strongly recommend that all committees be urged to follow the 
example of these committees. It will be of untold value to our incoming Moderator 
for next year, and it gives us a permanent record in our office of the work of the 
Association. 

The Church Extension Committee has been active, with no recommendation for the 
purchase of property this year. This committee has made every effort to complete the 
survey of the area north of Chapel Hill, and up to this date the task is still incomplete. 
They have made several appeals for assistance. Has your church assisted in this task? 
Surely as Missionary Baptists we must be concerned with people who are not interested 
in any church. We have a sizable investment already in this work. This task should 
have number one priority on the agenda of the Church Extension Committee for the 
coming year. Yes, foreign missions are a must, but we are told to begin at home. The 
Audio-Visual Aids Committee, under the leadership of Harold Moore and Rev. Bill 
Pearson, has done an outstanding job in this area. The set of slides on Matthew T. 
Yates was so outstanding that the State WMU has furnished $400 with which to 
purchase a film strip for state-wide distribution. The Student Work Committee under 
the leadership of Rev. Julius Corpening has made progress (i) in the development of 
better communications between the universities, the Association and the churches j (2) 
an effort to boost the financial support and work with the 2600 Baptist students at 
Duke University and the University of North Carolina. This task is at our doorsteps. 
We must meet the challenge in this area. 

General 

The special committee to study the evening session of the Annual Association Meeting 
recommended (i) That the evening session be continued (2) that the Program Com- 
mittee be requested to include vital business matters in the evening session (3) that a 
committee be appointed to determine if the program of the Annual Meeting could be 
satisfactorily covered in one day. This report was approved by the Board, Rev. 
'Frank Marks and his committee has been guided by this recommendation and our 
program this year will have considerable changes from previous years. We would 
urge pastors to bring their lay leadership to the night session. Many who are unable 
to come to day meetings could come to this part of our Associational Meeting. 

The Board approved a motion that the Association buy the Matthew Tyson Yates 
home place for a memorial for North Carolina's first foreign missionary, provided that 
the churches were interested to the extent of providing special funds.

EXTENSION COMMITTEE REPORT 

Your Extension Committee, working- under the plan as set forth by the Association 
last year, has sought to complete the work that has already been started and to establish 
other methods of rendering- services to all people. 

Miss Judy Griffin worked for several weeks this summer. She brought the material 
up to date for the North of Chapel Hill survey. She also visited over a hundred homes 
in and around Few Gardens in conjunction with Edgemont Baptist Church and other 
churches in that area. The committee makes the following report: 

(1) . The North of Chapel Hill survey has not been completed, but almost all the 

packets have been given out and this project should be completed in the near 
future. 

(2) . Because of the growth and the possibility of a future development in the 

Parkwood area, it was felt that we should follow a wait and see policy before 
property is secured for a church site. Also the local churches are taking care 
of the needs of the people at the present time. 

( 3 ) . We have investigated the possibility of a Home Fellowship, sponsored by 

local churches. The committee has tried to inform the churches as to other 
ways that they may be of service to their people, such as day schools, etc. 

(4) . The committee recommends that the Homestead Heights Baptist Church, having 

been under the watchcare of the Association for a year, be received into full 
fellowship of the Yates Baptist Association.

REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

During the past year the women in our Association joined together with all of the 
women of the Southern Baptist Convention in the celebration of the Seventy-Fifth 
Anniversary of Woman's Misionary Union. 

In the Yates Asociation there were 4,5 1 5 women and children engaged in missionary 
activities. In the churches of the Yates Association there are 2,638 members in Woman's 
Missionary Societies. There are 18 churches that have Advanced Societies. They are: 
Calvary, Carrboro, Cheek Heights, Fellowship, First, Gorman, Grace, Guess Road, Hollo-

Honor Societies. They are: Grey Stone, Lowe's Grove and Mount Carmel. 

In February, 1962, the W.M.U. Leadership Course was taught with 60 of our 
women receiving Cards of Accreditation. In making a survey of the churches, the 
women feel that the most outstanding thing we did for the promotion of missions was 
training of our Leadership. There were 1,332 Mission Study Books read with 82 
Mission Study Classes taught. 

Forty-five of our churches engaged in the five days of Prayer for Foreign and Home 
Missions. 

There are 23 Y.W.x*!. organizations in our churches with 216 members. We have 
an active Y.W.A. Council. The President of this Council was sent to Ridgecrest for 
the Y.W.A. Leadership Training. We had three Advanced Y.W.A.'s. 

The Girls' Auxiliary has done outstanding work during the year. There are 69 
organizations with 772 members. There were 6 Honor Organizations: Rose of Sharon, 
Lakewood (2), Homestead Heights, Westwood and Cedar Fork. There were 17 
Advanced Organizations. 

The Junior Organizations were Braggtown, Carrboro (2), Gorman, Guess Road, 
Holloway Street, Immanuel, Lowe's Grove, Mount Hermon, Temple. The Intermediate 
Organizations were Calvary, Ephesus, First, Grey Stone, Holloway Street, Temple, 
Westwood. 

There were 1 8 Approved G.A. Organizations. The Junior Organizations were :

For the fourth year, Mrs. Bettie Mae Dickey, our G.A. Director, has led a very 
sucessful Camp. In August at Camp Kanata there were 100 girls in the Junior G.A. 
Camp and 35 in the Intermediate G.A. week-end Camp. 

The women and children of Yates Association are continuing to promote the

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD 

Brotherhood and Royal Ambassador work in our association has shown a definite 
■increase during the year, both in number of participants and in interest. 

All the materials for the new Crusader, Pioneer and Ambassador programs are 
now "off the press'* and available in the Baptist Book Store. They are tremendous! 
-New materials for concentrated training in the Brotherhood organization are also 
available. They should provide more "know how" to our men and improve the work 
In general. ^ .1, - .

During the year we had Royal Ambassador basketball and baseball leagues led by 
Dallas Branch, an able boys' sports leader. The activities were confined largely to 
the Pioneer age-group. 

The annual Ladies' Night Banquet at Grey Stone Church on January 22 had a 
capacity crowd with considerable merriment and a serious tone in closing. 

On April 16 the program at Immanuel Church was given to a discussion of 
"Witnessing." The "Lay-Witness of Yates Association" organization was explained 
and promoted. Several men gave witnessing testimonies. Mr. W. Frank Ingram, 
Missionary of the Anson Association, and a well-known lay-evangelist was the final 
speaker. 

The annual Parents'-Boy Night was held in Bethesda community on Saturday 
afternoon and evening, August 10. There was a thrilling baseball game between 
Immanuel and Bethesda churches and plenty of weiners and drinks to follow.

REPORT OF MUSIC MINISTRY 

Associational events sponsored by the Yates Associational Music Committee included 
a choral clinic, a hymn sing, and participation in the Central School. The Choral 
Clinic, held in February at the Angier Avenue Baptist Church, was a very worthwhile 
endeavor and a help to those who attended. There were two classes offered on each of 
the two nights of the Clinic. One class, for singers, was led by Miss Geraldine Cate 
of Raleigh. The emphasis in this class was on choral singing, tone diction, style, 
repertoire, etc. The other class, led by Leonard A. Smith, was for those interested in 
improving their choral conducting and song leading. A total of 52 people, 1 1 of them 
church music directors, attended the clinic and a total of 14 churches were represented. 

The Hymn Sing held on June 23 at the Gorman Church was attended by approxi- 
mately 100 persons. The hymns used for this service were those from the Baptist 
Hymnal having anonymous American folk tunes. Hymn tunes by the early American 
composers, Bradbury, Mason and Hastings were also sung. Leaders for this interesting 
service included the following: Leonard A. Smith, John T. Laverty, Patricia Langston, 
Julian M. Motley, Sandra Whitener, Susan Broadwell, John C. Grant, and the choir 
of Gorman Baptist Church, 

Plans were made to offer music courses in the central school to be held in October, 
1963. It was felt that this would strengthen the central school and strengthen the 
task of improving the music ability among the people of our associational churches. 
The books to be studied are: The Beginning Vocalist, Song Leading, and the Graded 
Choir Handbook. 

For churches who need information or counsel on matters pertaining to the local 
church music ministry, the associational music committee is always available to help 
and advise.

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL 1962-63 

The Sunday School organization of the Yates Baptist Association had as its aim for 
the year 1963-64 the promotion of fellowship in a learning atmosphere among the 
Sunday Schools in the Association through the resumption of the Associational Sunday 



38 



Fifteenth Annual Session 



School conferences and the continuation of the individual meetings in the local churches* 
It was the feeling of the officers that something had been lost during 1961-62 in 
continuity, fellowship, information and inspiration by doin^ away with the central 
conferences. On the other hand, it was felt that much had been gained in the local 
churches by the "tailor made" meetings held in the individual churches during 1961-62. 
In an attempt to retain the advantages of the "tailor made" meetings, and, at the same 
time, to foster fellowship, information, continuity and inspiration, a combination of the 
two approaches was attempted this year. 

Hoping that the churches would avail themselves of the services of the Associational 
officers, an offer was made to the Sunday Schools of the services of the Associational 
officers in individual conferences to fulfill any need that the local Sunday School might 
have. We regret to report that no churches requested the aid of the Sunday School 
organization in any form during the year. 

Two central conferences and the Central School for the Fall were planned. The 
first of the conferences was to be held at the Guess Road Baptist Church of Durham on 
February 26 with Mr. John Fletcher of the Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church in 
Charlotte, North Carolina as the guest speaker for the general assembly section of the 
program. The theme for the meeting, "Witnessing through the Sunday School," was to 
be enlarged upon in the age-group-conferences which were to be led by the officers 
of the Association. This theme seemed to be especially appropriate due to the decline 
in our association and in the Southern Baptist Convention in the enrollment in Sunday 
School. The basic premise underlying the selection of this theme was the belief that 
the Sunday School has within it the best established organization for evangelism in the 
churches and that few churches fully utilize this organization for the propagation of the 
Gospel, Due to the only big snow of the year, this conference had to be cancelled. 
Feeling the need for this theme to be emphasized among the Sunday Schools, the 
Associational officers rescheduled Mr. Fletcher to speak and the theme to be used at 
the May 21 conference held at the University Baptist Church, Chapel Hill. 

At the time of this writing, the Central School to be held on October 21, 22, 24 and 
25 at the Grace Baptist Church in Durham is still in the future. At the School nine 
books pertaining particularly to Sunday School work are to be offered for study. 
Eight books dealing with various areas of Christian concern will also be offered. It is 
hoped that this School will prove of great help in promoting the work of the Sunday 
School and assisting the individual Christian in his search for the better life in an 
everchanging and deeply challenging world. 

As we look forward to a new year in Sunday School work, we do so with the 
prayer that the new officers will have the support of the Association and the churches 
as they attempt to lead all Sunday School members to become more faithful stewards 
of the talents that He has invested in each Christian. The world lies before us. There 
are many to be won, many to be taught, many to be developed. That God will direct 
the new officers in their efforts to enlist, enlarge, and develop is our prayer for the year 
that lies ahead.

REPORT OF CONSTITUTION COMMITTEE 

The Constitution Committee recommends to the Yates Baptist Association the follow- 
ing- change in its Constitution: 

ARTICLE 25. Section (2). Present reading: 

The Finance Committee shall be composed of five members, one of whom shall be 
Treasurer. This committee shall present a proposed annual budget to each regular 
session of the Association, and, shall devise plans for raising the budget. 

Changed to read: 

The Finance Committee shall be composed of ten members, one of whom shall be 
the Treasurer. The other nine members of the Committee shall be elected for a term of 
three years with three members elected each year on a rotating basis. 

(In order to implement this change) that we elect all the members of this committee 
at the 1963 annual meeting of the association, that the newly elected members be asked 
to determine among themselves which persons shall serve for a term of one year, two 
years, or three years respectively.

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMITTEE 

On September 10 at Cheek Heights Church, our Associational Board received a 
proposal that an ad furnished by the Christian Action League of N. C. be placed in 
the Durham papers sometime during the forepart of December stressing the true signifi- 
cance of Christmas and the inconsistency of using alcoholic beverages during its 
observance. 

Our committee met with the Rev. Eugene Carmichael of Mt. Pisgah Church, who 
proposed the idea, and discussed this and other ways of accomplishing the same purpose. 
Out of this discussion we recommend i. that we purchase 500 cardboard posters with the 
same fore-mat (cost: $55-60.00), 2. that these be placed in the churches and other 
strategic places in the area of our Association, 3. that individuals and churches be given 
an opportunity to contribute toward this project, 4. with the balance to come from 
regular funds of our Association.

REPORT OF BIBLICAL RECORDER 

For 130 years the Biblical Recorder has provided a medium of communication and 
information for North Carolina Baptists. Originating in the movement in which the 
stimulus of the foreign mission enterprise launched numerous colleges and publications 
among Baptists, the Biblical Recorder has performed a faithful and useful ministry 
among us and now continues as an excellent news organ for the denomination. It now 
has 80,000 subscribers — an impressive number when viewed alone, but comparatively 
small for the ten times as many Baptists in churches affiliated with the State Convention. 

The Biblical Recorder offers two plans, in addition to individual subscriptions, to the 
churches of the state. It offers the special rate of $2.50 per year per subscription to 
clubs of four or morej and an even better rate of $2.00 to churches which will send the 
weekly to every resident family in the church.

The Biblical Recorder provides a meeting place in which the Baptists of North 
Carolina can come together each week. When people know, they respond. When they 
are not properly or accurately informed, they become victims of rumors and misin- 
formation. We would encourage every church to adopt the Every Family plan as a 
means of insuring the fullest dissemination of vital information about the denomination 
among its members. They will be better church members as a result.

REPORT OF FINANCE COMMITTEE 

The Yates Association Finance Committee submits the following log of activities for 
the past twelve months. 

A. At the beginning of the year A. B. Stone, Jr, was selected Co-Chairman and 
John Tiller as secretary. A revised budget, matching the pledges from the churches, 
was presented and approved at the January meeting of the board. This was done in 
compliance with previous instructions from the board. 

B. Various meetings were held in preparation for the ''Quarter Per Quarter" 
Campaign. The first meeting was held on April 8 with the majority of the pastors 
in their regular conference. They approved the idea. 

C. On April n a joint meeting was held with the Assembly Grounds Committee. 
They approved. 

D. On April 26 and May 6, meetings were held at Braggtown and Mt. Carme] 
churches with various pastors, finance committee chairmen and treasurers in order to 
to explain and discuss the campaign. There was good reception in both meetings. 

E. On May 27 another joint meeting was held with the Assembly Grounds com- 
mittee. From this meeting came a unanimous recommendation to the association board 
to purchase the 23.3 acres of land adjoining the present Assembly Grounds on Wake 
Forest Highway (on the east side). This was approved unanimously by the board 
on June 25. 

F. In July the two committees proceeded and acquired 58/ioos acre from Julian 
Coley also adjoining the grounds on the east, 

G. In August the associational auditor, Frank Nelson, was consulted through the 
Treasurer, Charles McKinnon, and the records are being revised and updated for the 
next budget year. 

H. In September, through the help of various Royal Ambassador leaders, members of 
the Assembly Grounds committee, and an appropriation of $250 through the associa- 
tional board, two overnight encampments were held at the grounds with one boy from 
each of twenty-one churches in attendance. 

I. In the September board meeting, the finance committee recommended approval 
of the application of Homestead Heights church for $2500 from the State Convention. 
It was passed. It was also suggested that the churches be asked to contribute toward the 
possible purchase of the Matthew Tyson Yates property in the Mt. Pisgah community 
for $1500. 

J. An application for State Convention funds from Westwood church in the amount 
of $1625 was disapproved. It was the feeling of the committee that such funds are 
normally reserved for new missions and churches and those in dire financial conditions. 

K. Also, in September, it was agreed to ask the board and the constitution com- 
mittee to propose the enlarging of the Finance Committee to ten with all the members 
on a rotating basis except the Treasurer. (This was approved by the board on October 
15.) It was decided to follow through with the Loyalty Dinner at Lakewood church 
on Tuesday night, October 29 at 5:45. 



42 



Fifteenth Annual Session 



L, In the October 15 th board meeting the finance committee recommended "that 
the sum of $1400 be removed from the Association Honorarium account (honorariums 
received from the churches by Mr. Mumford for supplying- pulpits and rendering other 
services) leaving a balance of $36.68, that $700 of the $1400 be presented as a gift 
to the Rev. Hubert Mumford in grateful appreciation of his ten years of service to the 
Yates Baptist Association, that the remaining $700 be deposited in the general account 
of the association." This was approved. 

M. Most of the materials for the "Quarter Per Quarter" campaign have been acquired 
and printed, and are being distributed at this annual meeting. Between 1/3 and 1/2 of 
the churches have selected campaign managers and the outlook for a very successful 
campaign seems bright. 

N. The finance committee takes this opportunity to express its appreciation to our 
-Superintendent of Missions for his help in so many ways during the year.

REPORT OF ASSEMBLY GROUNDS COMMITTEE 

We are very happy to report encouraging progress during the past year in the 
development of our Assembly Grounds. 

At the outset we gave copies of the Master Plan to the members of the committee 
as a guide. We decided to concentrate on providing additional facilities immediately 
to hasten the use of the grounds by associational and church groups, and 2) on ac- 
quiring more land on the eastern boundary that was now available. 

Since that time many hours have been given by various members of the committee 
in accomplishing these objectives. A road has been cut to the Pioneer Camping Area 
on the western boundary 5 three tents on platforms have been erected, each with a 
charcoal grill and picnic table. A play area has been cleared and a supply of play- 
ground equipment acquired. Two additional picnic tables and charcoal grills are 
on hand for suitable areas in the east. 23.6 more acres have been purchased within 
the last few weeks bringing the total property up to 79.2 acres. 

During the summer the Guess Road Church alone reserved our new 14 x 16 tents 
•on three successive Friday nights. On two successive weekends our committee invited 
the churches to send one boy each to overnight encampments at the Association's ex- 
pense. Twenty-one Churches responded j they were Alston Avenue, Angier Avenue, 
Bethesda, Calvary, Cedar Fork, Durham Memorial, Ebenezer, Fellowship, Gorman, 
Grace, Grey Stone, Holloway Street, Homestead Heights, Lakewood, Lowe's Grove, 
Mt. Pisgah, Olive Branch, Plainview, Temple, University, Yates. 

Respectfully submitted, 
George Ray, Chairman

Fifteenth Annual Session 



During 1962-63 there were 614 pieces of equipment and material checked out of 
the Association's A-V Library, ^ 

Published New Catalog: The SECOND EDITION of the Yates Association Audio- 
Visual Catalog was published in February 1963 and was distributed to pastors and 
organizational leaders in all the churches. 

Audio-Visual Aids Clinic: A Clinic was held February 18, 19, 21 and 22, 1963 at 
Grace Baptist Church. There were 38 persons in attendance. Of these 10 persons 
received study course awards on the book. "Teaching and Training with Audio-Visual 
Aids" by Earl Waldrup. They were from: Lakewood, Grace, Edgemont, Bethesda, 
Grey Stone, Holloway Street and Hope Valley. 

Nine pieces of literature were produced for distribution at the Clinic. A set of 
slides, made while the clinic was in progress, showing each feature of the clinic is 
available through the A-V Library. 

The Mattheuo Tyson Yates Slide Series: This year a set of slides was produced on 
the life of Matthew T. Yates, Most of the scenes used were "staged" at 1 1 different 
locations, using 65 persons from 14 churches. Members of the Woman's Missionary 
Societies furnished the costumes for most of the scenes. 

In July, Woman's Missionary Union of North Carolina provided $400.00 for the 
production of the slide series into a filmstrip. The filmstrips are expected to be 
available from Yates Association office by January ist. A tape-recording of the 
narration will also be available. 

Tafe Recorder Ministry: Some growth has taken place in tape recorder ministries 
in the churches. In 1962 there were 11 ministries reaching about 300 persons weekly. 
At the end of the Association year, 1963, there were 17 churches maintaining this 
ministry to persons "shut-in" and "shut-out" from public worship services. These 
churches are ministering to approximately 87 homes and institutions reaching about 425 
persons weekly through a tape recorder ministry. 

Assistance to Churches and Other A ssociations : Members of the committee have 
counselled with 6 of our churches on matters pertaining to sight and sound needs in 
the churches. We have assisted 3 churches in the purchase of tape recorders, and one 
church in the purchase of a slide-filmstrip projector. An Audio- Visual Aids conference 
was led by one member of the committee for the Training Union of the North Roanoke 
Association, at Rocky Mount. 

A member of the committee spoke in 8 churches in the Robeson Association's School 
of Missions on using Audio-Visuals in the educational program of the church and 
assisted one of those churches in securing an installation of closed-circuit T.V. for 
special services held in the church. A irember of this committee, Rev. W. L. Pearson, 
Jr., serves as an Approved Worker in Audio-Visual Aids for the Department of 
Program Services of the Baptist State Convention. 

Comfnittee Recommendations : The committee makes the following recommendations 
to the Yates Association churches: 

t . We recommend that every church elect an Audio-Visual Director to co-ordinate 
the use of Audio-Visual Aids in the programs of the churches and to train 
qualified operators of the equipment. 

2. We recommend that each church consider the establishment of its own Audio- 
Visual Library, using the Association library as a supplement to it. 

3. We recommend that the churches avail themselves of the five "w^w'* "Audio- 
Visual Education Plans" now being sponsor'^^^d by the Broadman Films De- 



Yates Baptist Assoqation 



47 



partment of the Baptist Sunday School Board. These "plans" make possible 
the procurement of both equipment and films at marked savings to the churches. 
(This committee will be happy to provide you with information on these 
"plans.") 

4. We recommend that the churches continue to use the Association owned equipment 
and materials in the A-V Library as the churches have need for them. In 
addition, we call attention to the fact that a library of 2200 filmstrips and 100 
motion pictures is maintained in the Department of Program Services of the 
Baptist State Convention, 301 Hillsboro Street, Raleigh, N. C, 

A catalog of these free rental materials is available from the Department and 
reservations are made direct with the Department of Program Services. 

Assistance Available to the Churches: The committee stands ready to be of service 
to the churches in an advisory capacity in the selection and purchase of Audio-Visual 
equipment and materials. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Harold E. Moore, Chairman 

REPORT ON BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOME 

More children were served by the Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina last 
year than ever before in history. This was made possible by the interest, prayers and 
giving of North Carolina Baptists and other friends through the Thanksgiving Offerings^ 
once-a-month offerings, Cooperative Program Gifts, food, clothing and other things. 
Without these, many services to children and families could not be provided. 

Financial support for the past year has come from the following sources: Cooperative 
Program — 33%; Thanksgiving Offerings — 30%; Once-a-month Offerings — 16%-^ All 
Other— 21%. 

Applications for the admission of children are increasing. Relatives, Pastors, 
friends of dependent children, departments of public welfare and others plead with the 
leadership of the homes daily for help. A familiar plea is, "Unless vou can help this 
child, there is no hope for him." There are three areas of need: 

1. An immediate increase in the number of children in good foster homes in all 
areas of the state. 

2. Continuous expansion and up-grading of facilities to enable the Homes to keep 
abreast of the best in child care. 

3. An increase in financial support to undergird and strengthen the entire program. 

We have been reminded for several years of a growing need for specialized services 
for an increasing number of children who suffer emotional illness. These services are 
being provided to a limited number of children in a small home at Chapel Hill in co- 
operation with the University Medical Center. They are receiving the best professional 
and medical help that can be provided. We are most fortunate to have this facility. 
It will strengthen greatly our entire program of child care. 

The physical, mental, social and spiritual growth and development of our children 
has been most gratifying. North Carolina Baptists have every reason to rejoice with 
the very fine response of these boys and girls to the Christian love and care afforded 
them. Members of a fine and capable staff continue to grow in their love for children 
and their ability to work effectively with them. 

In order that North Carolina Baptists might maintain their present program and 



48 



Fifteenth Annual Session 



meet the challenge of the future, a generous Thanksgiving Offering is a MUST. We 
would challenge Pastors, Sunday School Superintendents, and other church leaders to 
make the best preparation possible for the forthcoming offering. Giving for the care 
of dependent children affords one of our greatest joys in Christian Service. 

Respectfully submitted, 

I. G. Greer 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON EVANGELISM 

This has been a year of transition and we have seen many new developments in our 
efforts to win the lost to Christ, We are aware of the tremendous task which we face 
in evangelism throughout our churches. There have been very few tangible evidences 
of the committee's work. We have been able to call our pastors together with their 
visiting evangelists for fellowship breakfasts on several mornings of our simultaneous 
Crusade Weeks. We have emphasized individual church participation in the simultaneous 
Revivals this year. 

The Recommendations by the Committee on Evangelism for the coming year include: 

(1) . The suggestion that every pastor who possibly can be his own evangelist in his 
own church. Pastors who have repeatedly practiced this have indicated that great 
blessings have befallen their churches and their personal lives as a result. Pastoral 
participation strengthens the Pastor's relationship to his people. 

(2) . We also suggest that every church participate in the simultaneous Revival 
Effort March 29-April 12. Our efforts in future years will not include the simultaneous 
effort. Therefore, we are requesting that every church strive to participate in an 
all-out effort to win people to Christ simultaneously. 

(3) . Another suggestion is that we support the program of Lay Witnessing recently 
re-activated by the Brotherhood. By bringing a larger number of people into involve- 
ment in evangelism, we can expect greater results throughout the year. 

(4) . Again, the Annual Associational Rally on Evangelism will be different in 
nature from anything we have ever tried before. Speakers for the Rally will include 
Dr. John Lawrence, Shelby, and Mr. Gary Harthcock, Raleigh. This meeting will be 
designed to inspire and inform toward a more effective evangelism. We urge every 
person to attend. 

(5) . Finally, the Committee is seeking to establish a ground of communication 
among all of our churches and pastors. Since all do not hold the same view, it is 
necessary for us to bring about an understanding of one another's position. This will 
strengthen evangelism in our Association. 

The suggested Committee members for the coming year are: Frank H. Grumpier, 
Chairman, B. C. Beaver, Malbert Smith, Jr., Ernest Holt and Ray Rogers.

REPORT ON THE NORTH CAROLINA HOMES FOR THE AGING 

1963 

The ministry of our North Carolina Homes for the Aging has been blessed in a 
•wonderful way during the past twelve years of ou*: operation. 



Yates Baptist AssoaATioN 



49 



We are now serving- i6o residents in the four Baptist Homes, the Hayes Home and 
Resthaven in Winston-Salem, the Albemarle Home at Albemarle and the Hamilton 
Home at Hamilton, North Carolina. 

In June, 1962, the latest addition, Hamilton Home, was opened for the first 
residents. This new facility has brought much joy and happiness to the new residents 
as well as to the Baptists of eastern North Carolina. We are looking; forward to the 
future when the excellent services of our Homes can be extended to reach and serve 
more of our ag-ing people in the central part of our state. 

The averag-e age of our residents is 80 years. The youngest is 65 and the oldest 
is 102. Between this age span we are trying to surround these friends with love, peace 
and security. The greatest single contribution we make is in the nursing care. Each 
resident is assured of loving christian care in sickness as well as in health. 

In order to render this service we are continually dependent upon the prayers, the 
visits, the loving concern and financial support of our Baptist people and our churches. 
The two most vital means of support are from the churches in the Special Day offerings 
the third Sunday in February, and through the Cooperative Program. The Homes' 
share in the Cooperative Program is only $7.92 out of each $1000.00 contributed 
through this program. So it is quite evident that we have to look to our churches 
in the Special Day offerings for the greater part of our support. 

The Yates Association churches have given a good account of their stewardship to 
the aging during these years. We have the faith that they will continue to increase 
their gifts for this worthy cause during the coming years. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. T. Howerton, Associational Representative 

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

The opportunity of serving persons created in the image of God is a high and 
holy privilege. 

You and I have such an opportunity in multiplied thousands of people who are sick 
in body, mind and spirit, and who come to our Baptist Hospital seeking help. We 
reach out the hand of love and mercy through the skilled and dedicated hands of our 
doctors, nurses, chaplains, and others involved in the ministry to the total person. We 
are grateful for this opportunity of joining hands with those who soothe the fevered 
brow, give the miracle drug, guide the surgeon's knife, bring the message of hope, 
and do the hundreds of other things which are necessary in the operation of our great 
Medical Center. 

The number of those who receive the services of our Hospital this year will be 
greater than the population of one of our medium-sized North Carolina cities, such as 
Wilson or Goldsboro. Most of them will be seriously ill and referred by their family 
physicians because they need the kind of care available only in a large medical center. 
They will come from all areas of our state and from all walks and circumstances of life. 
What a privilege it is to serve these friends in need and what a challenge to our skills 
and compassion! 

The Mother's Day Fund, which we provide by our special offerings, or an item 
in our church budgets designated for the Hospital, is the means through which we make 
it possible for those who cannot pay, to have the care they need. The $176,000 which 
the Hospital receives from the Cooperative Program provided by our churches must go 



50 



Fifteenth Annual Session 



to help pay for buildings, purchase equipment, and support the department of Pastoral 
Care. 

We call attention to the Service Patient Endowment Fun\i of the Hospital which 
we may place in our wills for any amount or contribute to at any time, and thus 
continue to be a part of this service of love through the years after we are gone. 

We wish to thank our people for their share in this ministry and call upon them to 
make their support a worthy expression of their Christian concern. 

Respectfully submitted, 
M. S. Yarborough (hsm)

Mr. Lackey was recommended for ordination.

council at Yates Baptist Church on February 25, 1963 for Henry Clyde Dollar. Mr. 
Dollar was recommended by the council for ordination.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON STUDENT WORK 

The responsibility of ministering to the hundreds of students on the two university 
campuses in the confines of the Yates Association is one of the most significant mission 
opportunities open to our churches and to the association. These students are at a 
highly critical juncture in their lives. It is essential that the gospel be communicated 
to them in a manner relevant to their particular situation. This we as Baptists attempt 
to do through the ministry of the Baptist Student Union. 

We are fortunate to have two very capable leaders in the persons of James Cansler 
and James Stines. These men carry on a creative ministry to our Baptist students and 
merit our continued support. 

Your Committee on Student Work has attempted to interpret the work of the 
Baptist Student to our churches over the past year. One formal meeting has been 
held for this purpose, and it is hoped that other such meetings can be conducted in the 
near future. More recently an opportunity was given to our churches to have students 
participate in some phase of the Sunday program. Quite a number of our churches 
responded favorably to this opportunity. 

The committee continues to attempt to encourage the churches to provide adequate 
financial support for the student program. The practice over a long period of time in 
North Carolina has been for the Baptist State Convention to provide facilities and staff 
for the Baptist Student Union with the local churches providing program funds. 
Several churches have included the Baptist Student Union in their budgets; however, less 
than half of the program needs are now being met from local funds at the Duke Baptist 
Student Union. 



Yates Baptist Assoqation

Your committee would like to suggest that: 

1. Our people familiarize themselves with the facilities and programs of both the 
U.N.C. and Duke Baptist Student Unions 5 

2. Opportunity be provided for students to participate in local church programs; 

3. Churches give serious consideration to including the Baptist Student Union in 
their budgets or providing funds through a special offering. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Julius H. Corpening, Chairman 

Committee on Student Work 

"THE PRINTING OF CHURCH HISTORIES IN THE 
ANNUAL MINUTES" 
Yates Baptist AssoaATiON, N, C. 

The Yates Association was organized in 1948-49 when several churches withdrew 
from the Mt. Zion Association, No church histories were recorded in the Mt. Zion 
Associationa! Minutes until 1921. The first history of a church at present in our 
Association was recorded in 1925. 

Histories from 1925 through 1948 are therefore recorded in the Minutes of Mt. 
Zion Association. Those from 1949 are recorded in our own Minutes. 

It was not until 1956 that our Association decided to include two histories per 
year in the annual Minutes. In 1958 the order for their appearing in the Minutes 
was adopted. This was set up to include the churches since 1925 and to complete the 
cycle of churches. 

Whenever a new church comes into the Association it will be placed at the end of 
a complete cycle from that date.

Report Section 



HISTORY OF GORMAN BAPTIST CHURCH 

Gorman Baptist Church is located on East Geer Street at Red Mill Road about 
three miles northeast of Durham, North Carolina. The first building on this location 
was constructed in 1916 when a tract of land was given by Charles T. Husketh to 
the congregation. Prior to this relocation, the church was known as the Piney Grove 
Baptist Church and was situated on Hamlin Road. Organization of this original con- 
gregation was brought about by the felt need of a Baptist church to serve Baptists north- 
east of the city, principally those living in three settlements on the Cameron Estate. 
The Piney Grove Church was received into the Mount Zion Association in 1894 during 
the annual session at Mount Moriah Church. 

Pastors who served the church while located on Hamlin Road were J. F. McDuffie 
(1894-1897), O. C. Horton (1897), W. A. Crabtree, W. E. Dunnegan (1910-1911), 
J. C. Hocutt (19 12-?), and J. M. Arnett, who was pastor when the church relocated 
at Gorman in 19 16 and became Gorman Baptist Church. There was no pastor during 
the years 1899 to 1909. Relocation was due to the decline of population in the 
Hamlin Road area. 

The story of the church since 19 16 has been one of consistent progress. Perhaps 
the most significant period of growth was during the sixteen year ministry of Z. B. 
Teel, Sr. (1925-1941). Membership in 1916 was fifty-fourj in 1937 it had reached 
two hundred fifty-six. Sunday School enrolment stood at two hundred forty. Few 
persons lived in Gorman in i93 7> 

the church history states, who were not professing 
Christians and most of them members of the Gorman Baptist Church. Training Union 
work (B.Y.P.U.) was begun during this period (organized 1929) and functioned vig- 
orously, as did also the Woman's Missionary Union, which was organized earlier in the 
church's history. Pastors who served prior to 1925 were J. D. Martin (1916-1920), 
J. B. Davis (1921), Paul Hartsell (1922), and H. G. Dorsett (1923-4). 

The original frame building constructed in 19 16 served as the only meeting place 
until the first unit of the present brick building was built and entered in 1940, near 
the close of Z. B. Teel's ministry with the church. Capacity of the building was four 
hundred, with educational space in the basement. Completion of the interior of this 
first unit took place under the pastoral leadership of Fred Scott (1942- 1945). During 
the ministry of John T. Edwards (1945-195 2), the present educational building was 
begun in 1950. The interior finishing of the second and third floors was not completed 
until the pastorate of Thomas L. Rtece (1953-4). The sanctuary was enlarged to 
seat about six hundred, modernized and refurnished in the early part of Victor S. 
Dowd's ministry (1954-1963). Most of the educational building and the sanctuary 
were air conditioned late in the 1950's. Extensive renovation of the ground floor and 
redecoration of the entire building were completed early this year (1964). 

Membership of the church is 765 (June, 1964). The current annual budget totals 
$46,673.00. The present pastor is Julian M. Motley.

HISTORY OF THE GUESS ROAD BAPTIST CHURCH 

The Guess Road Baptist Church was organized on August 26, 1945 following a 
Revival conducted by Rev. B. E. Morris and sponsored by the Durham Baptist 
Council. There were 11 charter members. Eighteen others joined before the charter 
was closed in October, 1945, making a total of 29. 

The first services were held at Hillandale School until they were moved to the 
basement of the new pastorium in 1947. 

Rev. B. E. Morris, of the Greystone Baptist Church, was the first acting pastor. 
He served faithfully from August 26, 1945, until March 3, 1946. The Church asked 
Miss Cora Lee Cannon to serve as their missionary and personal worker. She labored 
humbly, quietly and untiringly in the Church and community from August 26, 1945) 
until September 12, 1947. 

Rev. Ralph L. Cannon, Baptist Council City Missionary, served as pastor from 
March 10, 1946 until August 25, 1946. The outstanding achievement during his 
ministry was the construction of the Pastorium in July, 1946. 

Supply pastors ministered to the Church until Baptist Council Missionary, Rev. 
William L. Lynch came as acting pastor. He served from November 6, 1946 until 
July, 1947. Supply pastors ministered until August 24, 1947. 

The first full-time pastor, Rev. Alfred Gibson, served from August 24, 1947 until 
August, 195 I. 

The first educational unit was started in June, 1948 and occupied March 13, 1949. 
The lot for the Guess Road Baptist Church was purchased on June 20, 1944 at the 
price of one thousand dollars. The membership at that time was 205. 

Rev. W. Ches Smith, the second pastor, served from November, 195 1 to August, 
1958. Under his leadership additional lots were purchased in 1955 for future growth. 
In 1956, he led the Church to build the second educational unit. At that time the 
total membership was 315. 

On October 5, 1958, the ground breaking ceremony, for the present auditorium 
was held under the direction of Dr. W. C. Strickland, interim pastor. 

Rev. Floyd W. Ellis served as the pastor from November, 1958 until December 3, 
1961. Under Mr. Ellis' leadership, on October 25,, 1959, the new auditorium costing 
$120,000 was dedicated. The church membership at that time was 457. 

Our present pastor. Rev. Ernest G. Holt, preached his first sermon here on De- 
cember 2, 1962. 

In June, 1963, Mr. Donald L. Harrington was called as the first full time 
Minister of Music and Education. 

A new kitchen was made psosible by the sacrificial efforts of the men of the Church, 
and was dedicated on Sunday night, August 11, 1963. 

The Church sent their pastor on a Holy Land Mission tour in July, 1964. They 
have also voted to begin a Nursery — Kindergarten program as soon as possible. 

The present membership is 550 and the total value of the property is $265,000. 

REPORT ON BIBLICAL RECORDER 

In reporting on the Biblical Recorder^ two areas hold interest: how well North 
Carolina Baptists support their weekly news journal 5 and how well Baptists of the 
Yates Association are supporting it. Using available figures, we shall compare the 
support North Carolina Baptists give their paper with the support of Baptists in some 



38 



Sixteenth Annual Session 



other state conventions for their publications (the comparison is limited to those papers 
with a circulation of 70,000 or more) j and we shall compare the support churches of 



the Yates Association gave the

This comparison shows that as a convention. North Carolina needs to increase 
support of the Biblical Recorder. Although the total number of subscriptions last 
year, 79,250, is impressive and represents a steady and substantial increase, for a con- 
vention ranking second in church membership in the Southern Baptist Convention (and 
in the United States) to rank only seventh in subscriptions to its weekly news magazine 
weakens the impressiveness of the circulation figure. 

In the Yates Association, it is gratifying to note that there has been an increase of 
one church with the Every Family Plan in effect, five churches this year instead of four 
as last. A comparison of subscriptions by churches will show how each church stands 
in relation to each other and in comparison with last year.

A tabulation of the subscriptions shows that circulation in the Yates Association 
declined from 1,707 in 1963 to 1,538 in 1964. Subscriptions showed a decline in 29 
churches, no change in six churches, and increases in nine. Churches with an increase 
in subscriptions were Alston Avenue, First, Guess Road, HoUoway Street, Mt. Hermon, 
Mt. Pisgah, Olive Branch, Olive Chapel, Ridg-ecrest, and University. No subscriptions 
were reported from three churches. Bells, Pleasant Hill, and Roberson Grove. 

This is not an encouraging report. The Biblical Recorder deserves a better cir- 
culation than this in Yates Association churches. It carries much news of the denomina- 
tion. I myself think it could be made more interesting by publishing articles on de- 
nominational issues, theological trends, and Biblical scholarship.. But it is informative 
and newsy, and it does afford a forum for North Carolina Baptists to express their 
opinions on matters of general concern. May I urge the pastors and messengers 
here to promote circulation of the Biblical Recorder. The club rate (for four or 
more members of one church) is $2.50 per year. When it goes to every family in the 
church — and this should be the goal in every congregation — the subscription is only 
$2.00 per year.

REPORT ON THE HOMES FOR THE AGING 
1964 

Our North Carolina Baptist Homes have completed their 13th year of operation 
and we are looking forward to the 14th year with much enthusiasm. Our growth 
has been rapid, the development of our facilities has been satisfactory, yet the need 
for additional accommodations is urgent. We have come from i building and i resi- 
dent since March 195 1 to 160 residents and 4 buildings in 1964. Today there are 
170 people waiting for admission to our Homes. There are a number of inquiries 
during each year from aging persons who are sick, for which we cannot care be- 
cause of the lack of bed patient space. We hope to make plans for a nursing facility to 
be able to receive the sick and invalid patients in the near future. 

The best news for 1964 is the development of a 5th Baptist Home to be located 
at Yanceyville, N. C. This Home was made possible by the bequest of the late 
R. Sterling Graves and his sister, Mrs. Sallie Willie Graves Bradsher, of Yanceyville. 
Enough land and money was bequeathed to the North Carolina Baptist Foundation 
to build and equip this Home which will care for 30 additional residents. It is hoped 
that construction on this project will begin within this year. This is the largest single 
bequest that has ever been made for the Baptist Home. 

North Carolina Baptists are contributing an average of $90.00 per month on the 
cost of care of 90% of the residents who live in our four Homes, Resthaven and 
Hayes Home in Winston-Salem, and Albemarle and Hamilton Homes. This support 
comes through Special Day Offerings on the third Sunday in February of each year, 
designated gifts from Church budgets and through the Cooperative Program. If it 
were not for these gifts from 3400 Baptist Churches, we could not possibly render 
the care necessary for our residents. During 1963 there was a decline of 5% in gifts 
from all sources, but we are hoping these gifts will show an increase during 1964. 

The cost for residents varies from $130.00 a month for room and board for those 
who receive old age assistance to $175.00 per month for those who can more fully pay 
for their care. The actual cost of care is $220.00 per month for each resident, but the 



42 



Sixteenth Annual Session 



Baptists of North Carolina are supplementing 90% of our residents by $90.00 a month. 

There are four residents in our Homes from the Yates Association. The gifts 
from Special Day Offerings and designated gifts from the Yates Association during 
1964 have shown an increase of $859.80 over 1963. For this increase the Homes are 
profoundly grateful and hopeful that 1965 will show an additional increase.

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

The trustees and administration of our Baptist Hospital have expressed their 
appreciation for the interest and concern our churches have shown in the ministry 
of the hospital. In behalf of thousands of our people who cannot pay for the skilled 
care received at our Medical Center, they express their thanks for our Mother's Day 
gifts which make this service possible. 

This is a crucial year in the life of our hospital. It is serving more people 
than ever before in its history. At the same time, the needs continue to grow faster 
than its capacity to serve. For more than a year there has been an average of above 
7100 sick people on the waiting list for beds. A number of seriously ill or injured 
persons have had to be sent from the emergency rooms to other hospitals because 
no beds were available. 

Another difficult problem is that of meeting the cost of caring for those who 
cannot pay for the service they need. Within our state there are many older people 
who live on a meager Social Security or Old Age Assistance income, families whose 
savings and sometimes their ability to earn have been wiped out by long and 
serious illness, and great numbers who cannot rise above the poverty line. All 
who come must pay for their medical care in so far as they can, but there are great 
numbers who simply cannot pay the full cost. Our hospital tries to get all the help 
it can for these persons from welfare and health agencies, but these agencies do not 
pay the total cost and many persons are not eligible for such assistance. 

The hospital receives a share of our Cooperative Program money, which helps 
to support the Department of Pastoral Care and provide equipment and facilities 
required in the work of the hospital; but the Mother's Day Fund provided by our 
churches is the only means the hospital has of bridging a wide gap between the 
funds available and the cost of caring for those who cannot pay for their medical 
service. 

Our hospital and medical school are beginning a large development program 
greatly to increase the capacity of our Medical Center to care for our sick people 
and to train additional doctors, nurses, and other personnel to serve in our com- 
munities, on our mission fields, and wherever these trained persons are so badly 
needed. The people of the Winston-Salem area have expressed their confidence in 
our Medical Center by pledging more than seven million dollars to this enlargement 
program. Our great concern is that, when our hospital has increased its capacity 
to meet our specialized medical needs, will our churches provide the money to take 
care of those who need these services but cannot pay for them. 

This is a heavy burden on those who are responsible for the operation of our 
hospital. We are confident that if our people are informed of the work and the 



Yates Baptist AssoaATioN 



43 



great need, they will provide the necessary means. We call upon our pastors and 
other church leaders to lay this upon the hearts of their members. It is a greatly 
needed and wonderful ministry to which Jesus g-ave himself without reserve. We 
who are His followers must not fail those to whom he would minister through us.

REPORT OF WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

During the past year the women in our Association joined together with all of 
the women of the Southern Baptist Convention in the Celebration of our "Baptist 
Jubilee Year." 

In the Yates Association there are over 5,000 women and children engaged in 
missionary activities. 

Three of our churches had Honor Missionary Societies. They were: Grace, Lowe's 
Grove and Mount Carmel. 

Twelve churches had Advanced Societies: Temple, Alston Avenue, Rose of Sharon, 
Durham Memorial, Fellowship, Grey Stone, Guess Road, Braggtown, First, Faith, 
Westwood and Carrboro. 

Two of our churches had Approved Societies: Mount Hermon and University. 

The last of September the W.M.U. Leadership Course was taught with many of our 
women receiving cards of accreditation. In making a survey of our churches, we find 
that we still have the need for more trained leaders. 

During the year 1,502 Mission Study books were read and 86 Mission Study 
classes taught. 

Forty-five of our churches engaged in the five days of prayer for Foreign and 
Home Missions. 

There were 20 Y.W.A. organizations in our churches. We have an active Y.W.A. 
Council. Five of the churches in our Association had Approved Y.W.A. 's: Grey Stone, 
Braggtown, Grace and Bethesda. Three churches had Advanced Y.W.A.'s: Temple, 
Lystra and Rose of Sharon. 

The Girl's Auxiliary has done outstanding work this year. An Associational G.A. 
Council was formed and has been active. In the Association seven of our churches had 
Honor G.A.'s: Westwood, Angier Avenue, Cedar Fork, Lakewood, Homestead, Temple 
and Immanuel. There were fourteen Approved G.A.'s: Park View, Temple, Guess 
Road, Angier Avenue, First, Bethesda, Mount Moriah, HoUoway Street, each had onej 
Watts Street and Faith had two each. There were fifteen Advanced G.A.'s: Mount 
Hermon, Gorman, Grey Stone, Lakewood, Mount Moriah, Fellowship and Rose of 



44 



Sixteenth Annual Session 



Sharon with one each. First Baptist, Durham Memorial, Holloway Street and Mount 
Pisgah each had two Advanced G.A.'s. 

A Camp Director was appointed and one week of camp was held at Camp Kanata 
for Junior G.A.'s. Week-end Camp was held for Intermediate G.A.'s. 

We have a total of 902 enrolled in our Sunbeam organizations. 

We had five Approved Sunbeam Bands: Ebenezer, Westwood, Calvary, Temple and 
Berea. First Baptist had two Honor Sunbeam Bands. 

The women and children in our Association have triecl to carry out the theme 
For, "Liberty and Light" in our Association by promoting the Missionary spirit and the 
Grace of giving as we have studied and prayed together. May we continue to work 
together that the v/orld through Christ might be saved.

REPORT OF ORDINATIONS COMMITTEE 

At the beginning of the year the Ordinations Committee drew up an outline 
for ordinations examinations and adopted the following policy procedure: "The 
Ordinations Committee shall become a presbytery by inviting all the ministers in the 
Association to its meetings. Each candidate for the ministry shall be given ahead 
of the meeting an outline for ordination examination which the presbytery shall 
follow in its questioning." 

At the request of the Gorman Baptist Church, the Committee on June 8, 1964, 
examined Erbie Mangum and recommended him for ordination. 

At the request of the Faith Baptist Church, the Committee on July 21, 1964, 
examined Foy Hayes and recommended him for ordination. 

At the request of the Braggtown Baptist Church, the Committee on August 4, 
1964, examined Thomas Green and recommended him for ordination. 

At the request of the Watts Street Baptist Church, the Committee on August 6, 
1964, examined Miss Addie E. Davis and recommended her for ordination.

REPORT OF SUNDAY SCHOOL 

1963-64 was, to an extent, a year of reorganizing, evaluating, and strengthening 
our Associational Sunday School organization and program. In spite of a period of 
instability, a great deal was accomplished. An intense feeling of the need for out- 
reach and training was very evident among the associational workers. The downward 
trend of enrollment and attendance evident throughout the Southern Baptist Convention 
must be reversed. Also, it was felt that the greatest opportunity of real help and 
service lay in the area of individual help for churches to meet their particular needs. 

Two conferences were held during the year, along with the Central School. The 
first conference was held at Gorman Baptist on the theme of Evangelism. Special 



Yat2s Baptist Association 



45 



emphasis was placed on the value of Sunday School witnessing campaigns. The meeting 
was felt to be both meaningful and helpful. The need for intensified efforts in the 
area of visitation and personal witnessing was keenly felt. 

Reaching all prospects for the church is one of the basic tasks of the Sunday School 
and an area in which a great deal of work needs to be done. 

"Raising the Level of Reaching" was the theme of the second conference held on 
May 12 at Carrboro. As never before, lay leaders, pastors and educational directors 
are aware and deeply concerned about the need for a "teacher training" program of 
real depth and quality. Several such programs in our local churches had been estab- 
lished at the time of the conference. Leaders of such programs were present and gave 
personal testimony of the tremendous value of this type of training. In the conference 
for church staff and superintendents, a discussion period brought out the fact that such 
a program could be tailored to fit any church situation, regardless of size. Enthusiasm 
and interest was high, and seevral churches have either since organized or made plans 
to organize, such a training program. 

As we begin the new year, the Associational Sunday School staff is almost complete. 
A planning meeting for the year has been held. Areas of special emphasis will be ( i ) 
outreach through witnessing and regular visitation, (2) helping the churches in any 
way possible to set up "quality" programs of training for Sunday School ofiicers, 
teachers and workers. 

In the area of outreach, the "Adult Thrust" effort will be given all possible support. 

The challenge of the future in Sunday School work is most thrilling. Every church 
has needs and weaknesses. We hope that our excellent staff will be called upon often 
to help the individual church to strengthen its Sunday School. 

Respectfully submitted. 
Earl Long, Superintendent 

REPORT OF EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

We, the members of the Committee on Evangelism, are happy to report the follow- 
ing for the year, 1963-64. 

1. An Envangelism Rally was held at Braggtown Baptist Church with guest speaker 
Reverend John Lawrence of Shelby. The Rally, conducted January 28, was very 
well attended. An inspiring song service and message added much to the overall 
cause of evangelism in the Yates Association. 

2. Emphasis was placed on simultaneous revivals for 1964. It was evident that many 
of our churches could not take part, but many did and it seemed that the results 
of revival were generally good. 

3. Prayer breakfasts were held: 

Durham Memorial March 31 18 pastors present 
Guess Road April 7 22 pastors present 

The seasons of prayer which followed the breakfasts were uplifting to all and one 
of the highlights of the weeks' emphasis. 

4. Soul-winning Clinics were planned in some of the churches. The chairman of 
Envangelism Committee conducted some classes on personal witnessing.

5. The lay-witness group has remained active. The response to invitations from several 
churches for these men to participate has been good.

REPORT OF MUSIC MINISTRY 

The Music Committee met on January 10 at First Baptist with all members present 
plus Joseph Stroud, State Music Secretary from Raleigh. Mr. Stroud emphasized the 
aims and purposes of the committee. Plans were discussed and made for the rest of the 
year. 

Attendance at the Choral Clinic on February 10, 11 reached 100 choir members and 
leaders from 20 churches. Dr. Paul Yoder of Campbell College was guest leader. It 
was open to directors, organists, and pianists, 13 years of age and up. He went over a 
repertoire of choral music for our churches. 

Churches represented were as follows: Angier Avenue— 3, Berea — 6, Braggtown — i, 
Carrboro — 5, Cedar Fork — 5, Durham Memorial — 5, Ebenezer — 4, Edgemont — 12 
(the largest representation), Ephesus — -3, Faith — 4, First — 5, Grace — i, Immanuel — i, 
Lakewood — 4, Lowe's Grove — 11, Olive Chapel — 11, Ridgecrest — i. Temple — i, 
Yates — 1 1. 

We do hope that many more churches will participate in events like this in the 
future. 

The committee met again on April 10 at the home of the associational director. 
All the members were present or had called about previous commitments. Future 
meetings of the committee will be held on the Thursday after the second Sunday of 
the second month of each quarter. Plans for the coming Hymn Sing were worked out. 

The Hymn Sing was held at Lowe's Grove Church on Sunday afternoon, May 3. 
The hymns were those inspired by Psalms. Lowe's Grove Choir sang the choral re- 
sponses. The Reverend J. A. Fogleman, pastor of the host church led the invocation, 
Prayer and Benediction. The Reverend John C. Grant, pastor-advisor, read the Psalms 
that paralleled the numbers. The director led the singing. Leonard Smith played the 
organ and Mrs. Betty Colclough played the piano. 

The Music Committee also rendered service to the association by having a male 
chorus for the annual Evangelism Rally on January 28 at Braggtown Church. A 
rehearsal had been held on the previous Sunday afternoon. 

The Music Committee met on Friday, August 7, at First Baptist Church, and 
discussed some possible plans for the next Associational year, and also decided on the 
books to include in the Central School this year. Teachers would be Leonard Smith, 
W. E. Byrd, Jr. and John Laverty, with courses on Directing, Hymnody, and Church 
Pianist respectively. 

On Friday evening, October 2, four members of the committee attended the Associa- 
tional Officers' Area Training Conference in Greensboro First Baptist Church, having 
one of our own committee meetings on the way. There was much discussion at this 
conference as to the role of the Associational Music Council in the future, and especially 
for the coming year. 



Yates Baptist AssoaATiON

The Central School was held October 12, 13, 15 and 16 at Angier Avenue Baptist 
Church, and the afore-mentioned courses weer available. The attendance, however, 
was very poor, even though we feel many church leaders in the field of the ministr)^ 
of music would have profited greatly by attending the courses offered.

REPORT OF EXTENSION COMMITTEE 

In trying to carry out the Constitutional responsibilities and the command of Christ, 
to reach people with the Gospel, your Extension Committee has been diligently working 
on three major projects during the past year. 

1. The Edgemont Baptist Church last year launched out on a program for reaching 
unenlisted families through a Nursery-Kindergarten. It was primarily designed to 
reach some of the underprivileged families of their area. During this year, they 
were granted $500.00 from the Baptist Foundation of the State Convention. This 
money was to be used to help acquire another worker to help Mrs. Bunn. Since the 
money was granted through the Association, the Edgemont Church ask that a sub- 
committee from this committee assist them in screening applicants for the kinder- 
garten. This request was complied with. The kindergarten is doing well and has 
reached several families for the Edgemont Church through its services. 

2. During the year we have constantly been working on completing and tabulating 
the survey of the North of Chapel Hill Area. With the assistance of students of the 
B.S.U. of the University of North Carolina, the survey is complete. We find after 
tabulation that there are 110 "Baptist" families or "No preference" families living 
in this area. This number includes 210 adults and 156 children. Nothing has been 
done yet toward a possible new work in this area. 

3. Our most avid work has been directed toward the starting of a new work in the 
Parkwood section of the Research Triangle. Early in the year it was determined 
that there were about 300 homes in this development. We further investigated avail- 
able property and took an option, at no cost, on a centrally located site. There 
was some concern about the location of the property on option, so this property was 
not obtained. A recent survey taken of the Parkwood area shows that there are 72 
Baptist families there. Of this number, 55 families indicated that they would join 

a new mission in their community. This represents something over 8 5 adults and 
125 children for a new work now. It is our intention to obtain a sponsoring church 
to begin this new work. 

As the new year begins, it is hoped that other areas which have apparent needs 
for new work will be investigated and pursued.

REPORT ON CHILDREN'S HOMES 

The Children's Homes of North Carolina contain some of the happiest sad people 
and some of the happiest happy people the world has ever known. Where could a 
child without one or more parents or from a broken home find greater happiness than 
in one of our Homes where he receives the love of the many adults associated directly 
with him and the thousands who contribute generously each year toward keeping him 
happy. There is the worker in the Home, who graciously gives his love, his time 
and his knowledge to these young people. No greater happiness can man receive than 
to watch the results of his efforts grow into manhood or womanhood. 

Just look around you and you will find a product, if such be the proper word, 
of one of our Homes. I can assure you that you will find them working next to you 
in church, the community and/or in your daily business. You will be proud of them. 

Here in the Yates Association, we have a newly organized Alumni group and at 
their first meeting there must have been about 20 families of which one or more mem- 
bers were graduates of the Homes. 

At present we have approximately 20 children from our area in the Homes: 14 or 
15 have been admitted during the past year. Sadly though, I must report that all 15 
have come from broken homes. I say, sadly, because it seems a shame that a child 
with both parents living must enter the Homes. 

From Superintendent Wagoner I recevied a report that I think may be interesting 
to you. The financial support for 1963 came from (i) Cooperative Program — 3 6%j 
(2) Thanksgiving Offering — 30%} (3) Miscellaneous offerings — 19% and (4.) sur- 
prisingly to me 15% has come from regular once a month offerings. Let us, in Yates, 
aim especially at the Thanksgiving offering and see if we cannot double for each 
church the amount we gave last year. The needs of our children are growing. We are 
expanding our aid by trying new programs. In Chapel Hill we acquired a home and 
into this home come children from Thomasville, Pembroke, and Kinston who need 
extra special treatment or care. The doctors at Memorial Hospital contribute their time 
and knowledge without charge. So far, only 8 have received this special care, but 
for the future we can expect many more. For some the treatment is long} for others 
it is in and out. We are fortunate to have a wonderful couple, Mr. and Mrs. Wood, 
to look after these children. The total monies received by the Homes now must support 
this new one plus foster parents who keep children in their own homes. Thus the 
budget grows thinner for each of the old projects as the new projects are added. So let 
us strive to enlarge our hearts and shrink our pocketbooks for one of our most worthy 
causes, come November 2. 

Mrs. Ryman Muth, Home Worker in Chapel Hill, tells me that there is a shortage 
of foster homes. They need many more. Can you help? 

MY AIM FOR 1965: 
That each Yates Association Church will appoint a member as spokesman for the 
Homes-to-aid contributions. 

Thank you. 
Max Weaver 

REPORT OF ASSOGIATIONAL BOARD 

Your Associational Board met during the past year as follows: November 20, 1963 — 
Edgemont Baptist Church, January 14, 1964— Rose of Sharon Church, May 12, 1964 — 



Yates Baptist AssoaATiON 



49 



Carrboro Church, June 23, 1964 — Mount Moriah Church, September 15, 1964 — Faith 
Church, October 20, 1964 — Alston Avenue Church. Participation by the churches 
in the Board meetings through their representative board members has been com- 
mendable. We would remind every church that their participation in our deliberations 
is needed and desired. 

The Executive Committee of the General Board and the Associational Council 
met for several called meetings, reviewed the work of the Board and sought to 
evaluate its work in the light of its constitutional responsibility. Attendance at these 
meetings was good. Out of one of these meetings came recommendations concerning 
two significant steps forward. The first was the recommendation that our associational 
committees devise long-range plans projecting their course as far as five years in the 
future. The second was the recommendation that the association recognize the con- 
tributions of its laymen by selecting and honoring a "Layman of the Year." 

In many respects the past year has been one of our best years from the point of view 
of production and achievement and especially in the matter of cooperative undertakings. 
The committees have done a significant work this year. Several of them have had 
outstanding achievements as you will see from the individual reports. Some of them 
have worked faithfully in spite of many handicaps which came as a result of resigna- 
tion or illness of some of their members. Your Board is recommending several changes 
is the committee structure of the Association. These recommended changes will be 
found in the report of the Constitution Committee. It is felt that these changes will 
provide for more continuity and smoother operation of the committee work. Also, it 
will offset much of the delay that has hampered some of the committees in their work 
in the past. 

This has been a good year with the Associational organizations. The organizational 
heads have manifested a spirit of dedication and interest which could be exemplary 
for other associations. For the first time in several years all of the organizations have 
completed the year with a minimum of interruption in the positions of leadership. 
Their reports will reflect their spirit and consecration to their tasks. 

We owe a great debt of gratitude to our associational staff, Mr. Hubert Mumford 
and Mrs. Emily Warren. These two dedicated servants have worked hard and long 
for the cause of Christ through our cooperative endeavor. We are greatly blessed in 
having Mrs. Warren on our staff. Mr. Mumford has provided leadership of in- 
estimable value. Our staff has rendered service to the churches that cannot be measured 
in dollars or hours. We are grateful to God for what they mean to our work. 

As you digest the reports from the various organizations and committees of your 
Association you will see that it has indeed been a fruitful year. As we report to you 
in this meeting we thank God for what we have done and where we have come, turn- 
ing our faces forward we shall press forward with the hope and prayer that our work 
in the coming year will be even more productive and shall expand our Lord's Kingdom 
further. We pray that He shall give us the Holy Spirit's guidance and power that 
we may accomplish His will. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Russell Barbee, Moderator

Sixteenth Annual Session 



REPORT ON THE "QUARTER PER QUARTER" CAMPAIGN 

A. We have 47 Churches in Yates Association. 

B. 38 Churches have named "Contact men." 

C. 28 have made reports. 

D. 12 Churches made reports in the last quarter of 1963. 

E. 16 have joined our efforts during 1964. 

F. From these reports we have received $3,297.81. Several have completed the Sep- 
tember Quarter but have not made a report. 

G. We have been assured by most of our Churches that they will join us in this project 
in 1965. 

H. The "Quarter per Quarter" Program is a continuing one. We do not make annual 
requests. One Church thought it was included in our request for support of the 
Association. This, we have not done. 

I. Our hope was that we could raise .25 per resident member per quarter or $1.00 per 
year. 

J. Some have included it in the budget. We really feel that in 1965 we will see this 
program show great improvement in every phase. 

K. The Assembly Grounds Camp Committee has turned over to us plans for the pro- 
posed development of our grounds of which we have copies for you. 

L. On Thursday night, October 22, our committee met to study the plans further and 
hope to have a plan of financing to recommend to the Board by their November 
meeting. A bond issue has been suggested. 

M. Activities this year at the grounds have been most encouraging. We have had 
some 800 to use it for overnight camping and more than 1,000 have used it for 
different meetings.

REPORT OF THE AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS COMMITTEE 

This committee has had a busy year. We are pleased to make the following report 
to the Association: 

Training: At the Central Training School, October 1963, there were 13 enrolled with 
9 receiving awards on the book, "Teaching and Training With Audio-Visuals." 
In March we offered a technical training course in which 38 persons became 
"certified" directors and technicians in Audio-Visual aids. 

Conferences : A committee member conducted 4 departmental conferences at the V.B.S. 
Clinic, distributing sheets listing materials available for use with the V.B.S. cur- 
riculum. Three conferences were held with individual churches on equipment and 
materials. 

Enlistment: Twenty churches have been enlisted this year to participate in BSSB's 
Church Ait,dio-Visual Education Plan. Under this plan, 14 churches purchased 
slide-filmstrip projectors and 9 purchased new 16 mm motion picture projectors. 

Library Groivth: A comparison:

New Equipment: This year we have added to the Association-owned equipment i voice 
of Music Tape Recorder. The Baptist Sunday School Board has placed in our 
office I 300 watt slide-filmstrip projector and i 16 mm Bell-Howell motion picture 
projector for use by the 20 churches participating in the CAVE plan. 

Use of Materials and Equip7n-ent: We now have 366 pieces of equipment and materials 
in the A-V Library. During this year 701 pieces have been checked out for use 
by the churches. This is an average of 3/^ pieces each day the office was open. 



Yates Baptist Association

Mattheiu Yates Filmstrif: Copies of the filmstrip on the life of Matthew Tyson Yates 
were distributed beginning- in December 1963. We have sold 35 copies to date. 
Copies have been purchased by State Conventions in Kansas, Texas, Kentucky, South 
Carolina, Virginia and Georgia, and copies have been purchased by individuals in 
Kentucky and California. We gave a copy to Manhattan Baptist Church, New 
York City for use in their 27 chapels. Also a copy was given to Missionary Carlton 
Duke, Beirut, Lebanon. 

New Catalogue Published: 400 copies of the new Catalogue, the Third Edition, were 
prepared during September and distribution was begun in October, 1964. Two 
new features were included in this catalogue. A new category of materials, Non- 
Projected AidSy was added, and an Index listing all the Foreign Mission Filmstrips 
and slide-sets was included in the back of the booklet. 

Committee Recommendations: The committee makes the following recommendations 
to the Yates Association Churches: 

1. We strongly recommend that every church elect an Audio-Visual Director to 
coordinate the use of Audio-Visuals in the programs of the churches and to train 
qualified operators of the equipment. 

2. We recommend that each church consider the establishment of its own Audio- 
Visual library, using the Associational library as a supplement to it. 

3. We recommend that other churches join with our 20 already participating in 
the Baptist Sunday School Board's "Church Audio-Visual Education" plan. 

4. We recommend that the churches continue to use the Association-owned equip- 
ment and materials as they have need for them. In addition, we call attention 
to the fact that a library of 2200 filmstrips and 100 motion pictures, all free 
rental, is maintained in the Department of Program Services, North Carolina 
Baptist State Convention, 301 Hillsboro Street, Raleigh, N. C. A catalogue of 
these free rental materials is available from the Department and reservations 
must be made directly with the Department of Program Services. 

Assistance Available to the Churches: The committee stands ready to be of service 
to the churches in an advisory capacity in the selection and purchase of Audio- 
Visual equipment and materials. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. L. Pearson, Jr., Chairman 

REPORT OF STUDENT WORK COMMITTEE 

Your Student Work Committee has undertaken to provide support for the Baptist 
Student Unions on the Duke University and University of North Carolina campuses 
over the past year. In addition, effort has been made to interpret to the churches the 
role of the church in a campus ministry. On two occasions we have undertaken to 
provide students for special programs in the churches. 

This year the committee cooperated with the Department of Student of the North 
Carolina Baptist State Convention in securing a new Baptist Chaplain for Duke Uni- 
versity. We feel quite fortunate in having the Reverend Robert G. Hyatt to serve in 
this capacity. 

The committee feels that there are definite areas of need in the ministry to students 
which our churches need to fulfill. 



54 



Sixteenth Annual Session 



1. Students need to be and can be better prepared for college and university life 
in our churches. 

2. Our churches need to become better acquainted with the work of the B.S.U. with 
colleg-e students in our Association. 

3. Our churches need to provide more adequate financial support for Christian edu- 
cation as it is undertaken on the college and university campus by the B.S.U. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Julius H. Corpenitig 

REPORT OF FOUNDATION COMMITTEE 

It was not until the middle of the summer that our committee was finally complete. 
Since that time we have had one meeting. Another meeting will be set up in a few 
days and plans for real activity will be made for the coming year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Robert D. HoUeman 

REPORT OF JEWISH NEIGHBORS COMMITTEE 

This year marked the beginning of a new area of work. We have felt that our 
relationship with the Jews down through the years has been weak, if not non-existent. 
There are about 700 Jews witthin the boundaries of our association and apart from 
Christ, they are as lost as anyone else. 

In August the Associational W.M.U. gave their meeting over to our relationship 
with the Jews. The Reverend William Mitchell of the Home Mission Board came all 
the way from Ridgecrest to be the speaker. 

In September the Jewish Neighbors Committee had a meeting and discussed further 
plans. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John C. Grant 

* REPORT OF FINANCE COMMITTEE 

Committee meetings have been held regularly during the year in an effort to 
efficiently handle the financial program. Nineteen hundred sixty-four was the first year 
in which our association revised the budget at the January Board meeting to match the 
actual pledges of the churches. It has been very effective. 

The main project of the year was the "Quarter per Quarter" campaign. Joint 
meetings were held with the Camp (Assembly Grounds) Committee as a whole and 
with Harold Moses as its chairman. Members of the committee were each given 
several churches as their responsibility. A joint hamburger fry was held at the grounds 
with the Camp Committee. Meetings were also held with the "contact men." 

During the year two progressive steps were discussed briefly; (i) the possibility of 
buying or building our own associaitonal office building, and (2) the possibility of 
employing a part-time assistant Superintendent. 

In the October Board meeting our committee recommended, and the associational 
board accepted unanimously, that the Superintendent of Missions keep 100% of the 
honorariums received by him for supply work. It was also announced that our com- 



Yates Baptist Assoqation 



55 



mittee would bring recommendations to the November Board meeting on accelerating 
the development of the Camp (Assembly Grounds) . 

Respectfully submitted, 

A. B. Stone, Jr. 

REPORT OF GAMP (ASSEMBLY GROUNDS) GOMMITTEE 

Our committee is glad to report encouraging progress during the past year in the 
development of our grounds. Last fall the Dement property of 3.8 acres was finally 
acquired; this compelted purchases planned for the year. Since then several smaller 
projects have been completed. 

Early in the year the Committee journeyed to Camp Chestnut Ridge outside Efland 
to see the buildings of that Methodist development. Later floor plans were acquired 
for the buildings inspected. Professor Charles Stott of State College was consulted 
two or three times in deciding on the future development of the property. The plans 
have been formulated and presented to the Finance Committee and the Associational 
Board. The Master Plan for the whole project is being updated. 

During the last few months we have installed a drinking fountain at the shelter, 
drilled a second well, and built two outside toilets for the tent area. A heavy duty 
lawn-mower and playground equipment have been purchased. A sign has been 
installed inside the entrance defining uses of the grounds. 

Within a few days a ball-field will be cleared on our eastern boundary. 

Many groups have used the facilities during the summer. Over 800 people have 
slept on the grounds. Over 1,000 people used it in various ways. Within the last 
few days an 8/^ pound bass was caught from the pond. 

At the present time our Finance Committee is considering ways and means of build- 
ing a winterized cottage with adequate sewerage, water and other facilities for next 
summer. 

Respectfully submitted, 
George Love, Chairman 

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD 

During the last few years the Brotherhood and Royal Ambassador organizations have 
gone through difficult transitions in organizational set-ups, materials and even purposes. 
In carrying out the mandate of the Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Con- 
vention the fine tasks of the Brotherhood organization have been defined. A pastor 
said recently, "Until this happened, I could not promote this men's organization consci- 
entiously because it seemed to overlap with the programs of Sunday School and Train- 
ing. Now I realize that our churches must have a Brotherhood or certain tasks of the 
church will not be covered." 

We are so very proud of the new "Brotherhood Handbook for 1964-65" and the 
"Church Programs Guidebook for 1964-65." Now the Brotherhood as well as the 
other organizations of our churches have definite help for their current programs and 
long-range planning as well. 

During the year our Associational Brotherhood has sponsored a Men's Day Rally, 
a Boy's Day Rally, Royal Ambassador basketball and baseball leagues, a First Aid 
Course, four overnight encampments at the Camp Grounds on Wake Forest Highway, 



56 



Sixteenth Annual Session 



provided two leadership courses for both Crusader and Pioneer Counselors and Com- 
mitteemen. 

Our most successful Workshop was held at Cheek Heights Church on September 
28, 29 with about 160 handbooks purchased by the churches for the occasion. One 
layman said, "that Workshop showed a lot of preparation j it will pay off." 

It seems that Brotherhood work in the Southern Baptist Convention, in our State, 
and in our Association is now on the move. Let us pray that we will be able to 
maintain an efficient Associational Brotherhood organization to undergird the work in 
our churches.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MISSIONS 

Mr. Moderator, first I want to introduce my office assistant, Mrs. Emily Warren, 
who came to our association about a year ago with no increase in salary and five times 
as much work. She has gone far beyond what is normally expected. I know we all 
appreciate her work! 

1963-64 has been filled with the unexpected. Three of our pastors have had heart 
attacks, two or three others have had accidents or spent time in local hospitals for 
various reasons, and eight have resigned during the year (6 of full-time churches). 
Several of our lay leaders have also had serious conditions in their homes or business. 
These conditions added to normal daily pressures have put our work nearly six months 
behind in many areas. During the summer the state convention which through various 
departments sponsored meetings or emphases which have further complicated a con- 
gested schedule. 

Despite the difficulties, we look back with satisfaction. Within a few days we will 
finally complete the Operations Manual and a new simplified map. At this very meet- 
ing we hope to make several important revisions to our constitution which will make 
for a much smoother operation. Several appointed committees will become standing 
committees with 10 months instead of 6 in which to function. 

The Chapel Hill survey has been finished and tabulated. Lowe's Grove has given 
us some definite facts on the Parkwood area. The Homestead Heights Church has been 
relocated, and the indebtedness of the association on this project will be erased in a few 
more weeks. The Yates Baptist Camp, originally and incorrectly called the Assembly 
Grounds (and I'm responsible for the mistake) is experiencing an accelerated develop- 
ment. 



58 



Sixteenth Annual Session 



Now let me dream awhile. 1964-65 will see a new work started in Parkwood. It 
will see our first winterized building-, more tents, a ball-field, outdoor chapel and nature 
trails at the Yates Camp. The Executive Committee will formulate and present long- 
range plans. Our first "Layman of the Year" will be chosen. We will investigate the 
possibility of a new ofiice building, and an associate superintendent. A decision will be 
made on whether a new work is needed in the Chapel Hill area. 

In 1965-66 I anticipate a greatly increased income from the churches with a full- 
time associate superintendent of missions, a new ofiice building, a Seminary Extension 
Center, and the possible purchase of the Matthew Tyson Yates old homestead property. 

In 1966-67 I further anticipate another work north of Eno River. 

Whether you like it or not I have no plans nor desire to leave this position. I 
appreciate the privilege of serving in the Yates Baptist Association. I have all that 
any man could ask for or want in opportunities for service to our blessed Lord.

REPORT OF THE YATES ASSOCIATION JUBILEE COMMITTEE 

Your Associational Jubilee Committee is an outgrowth of the action of the Yates 
Baptist Association on October 31, 1962. The purpose of the committee was stated 
in a resolution proposed by Dr. Henry Turlington and adopted by the Association . . . 
"to formulate and recommend plans with the local Negro Baptist Association for a 
joint celebration of the Baptist Jubilee Year in 1964 and to devise and promote other 
appropriate ways of demonstrating our brotherhood in Christ and fulfilling our 
mutual responsibilities in the spread of the Gospel." 

Your committee, in an attempt to follow the direction of the Association, en- 
countered insurmountable difficulties in arranging an appropriate time for a joint 
meeting with our Negro brothers. These plans have not been abandoned, however, 
and a meeting with them is tentatively planned for the early Spring of 1965. Recog- 
nizing that this will not fall within the Jubilee Year but also recognizing that a 
meeting such as this will greatly benefit both the White and the Negro Baptists within 
our geographic location, the plans for this joint meeting are being laid. 

It is with apologies that the details of such a meeting for the calendar year 1964 
could not be worked out but with the anticipation of a very worthwhile and meaning- 
ful meeting to be held in the early part of 1965 that your committee presents this 
report.

REPORT OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMITTEE 

The Christian Life Committee during this associational year has become aware of 
the magnitude of some of the social and moral issues confronting the churches of our 
day, but it is unprepared to bring a meaningful report to the association at this session. 

It is the hope, however, of this committee that subsequent Christian Life committees 
will be able to deal effectively with these important matters, including race relations, 
and will thereby assist the churches in facing their responsibility.

It is further the hope of this committee that individuals within the churches will 
give much thought and prayer to these matters, and share their concerns with the 
committee. Respectfully submitted, 

John H. Bunn

REPORT ON ANNUITY BOARD 

Good news has been coming from the Annuity Board of the S.B.C. Over 50% of 
the churches of the Convention are now participating in the Board's retirement pro- 
gram. Out of 174 educational institutions, 118 are enrolled with their employees. 
Total membership in the plans is approximately 25,000. 

More than $43,500,000 have been paid out in benefits since the beginning in 
1918. Last year alone benefits totaled $3,250,000. 

During the year 1964 a new group term "Life Benefit Plan" was launched. The 
new plan provides low cost life protection to members while in active service, during 
disability or in actual age retirement. The cost is only i % of the annual salary basis, 
with minimum basis of participation set at $4,000 and maximum at $12,000. Mini- 
mum payments are $3.34 a month and maximum, $10. 

The widow or beneficiary of a member 45 or under will receive 2^ times his 
salary basis of participation in the event of his death. Thus the widow of a man 44 
years of age who was paying on a $12,000 salary basis would receive $30,000. If 
death was accidental the benefit would be twice this, or $60,000. 

In North Carolina our Annuity Secretary is the Reverend Guy Cain, Raleigh. On 
June I, 1957, we had 1026 churches participating in the retirement plans in our 
state. On June i, 1962, we had 1220, on June i, 1964, we had 1499, the 
time of our annual meeting this year we have exactly 1500. 

In Yates Association we found that 26 out of the 40 churches in 1953 were par- 
ticipating. At the present time we have participating 29 churches with 34 staff 
members, 4 churches temporarily without pastors, and 3 churches in which the pastors 
have not chosen to participate, a total of 36 churches. 

It is our hope that all of our churches will soon provide this security for their 
staff members AND THEMSELVES! Respectfully submitted, 

D. J. Booth 
Annuity Representative 

"THE PRINTING OF CHURCH HISTORIES IN THE 
ANNUAL MINUTES" 
Yates Baptist AssoaATioN, N. C. 

The Yates Association was organized in 1948-49 when several churches withdrew 
from the Mt. Zion Association. No church histories were recorded in the Mt. Zion 
Associational Minutes until 1921. The first histoi-y of a church at present in our 
Association was recorded in 1925. 

Histories from 1925 through 1948 are therefore recorded in the Minutes of Mt. 
Zion Association. Those from 1949 are recorded in our own Minutes. 



Yate? Baptist AssoaATiON 



61 



It was not until 1956 that our Association decided to include two histories per 
year in the annual Minutes. In 1958 the order for their appearing in the Minutes 
was adopted. This was set up to include the churches since 1925 and to complete the 
cycle of churches. 

Whenever a new church comes into the Association it will be placed at the end of 
a complete cycle from that date.

Report Section 



HISTORY OF CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH 

Calvary Baptist Church was organized in 194.8 in the Sherron Acres community 
under the auspices of the Baptist Council of Durham. A three-week tent revival and 
a two-week Daily Vacation Bible School were fore-runners of the organization on 
August I with 43 charter members. Mr. Norman Ferrell served as first pastor and 
full time services were held from the beginning. As long as weather permitted, the 
outdoor tent was used and homes were opened during winter. A portable organ 
provided accompaniment for these services. The men of the church labored diligently 
to construct a building and before winter was over, the congregation was able to meet 
inside their (incompleted) building. 

The church manifested steady growth under the leadership of the Reverend W. W. 
Glass and then under Reverend William Bennett. Membership climbed to 131 and 
much work completed inside and outside the building by 1950 when Reverend W. B. 
Cone assumed pastorship. Additional improvements including furniture, carpeting, 
pews, etc. were made and a new pastorium built. Unity in decisions prevailed among 
the membership and much physical labor has been donated by individuals. 

Reverend Ralph Ferguson followed as pastor and under his leadership many addi- 
tions were made to the church membership. The Reverend Clyde Geren followed as 
interim, and then as full pastor; during his ministry additional church property was 
obtained, a note-burning ceremony held and a new organ purchased. As of October i 
the Reverend Anthony Gurganus assumed the pastorate. He came from Lexington, 
N. C, is a graduate of Wake Forest College, Southeastern Seminary, and has had 13 
years experience. The present membership is now 437. 

HISTORY OF PLAINVIEW BAPTIST CHURCH 

The Plainview Baptist Church was organized in the home of Mr. and Mrs James 
Bridges on Fish Dam Road, December 28, 1949 with 24 charter members. On January 
6, 1950 the name Plainview was chosen, and meetings were begun the next day, 
Sunday, in a cabin on Redwood Road with the Reverend Lester Mann leading the ser- 
vices. The scriptural motto "Lo, I am with you always, even until the end" was 
selected by these charter members. 

Progress during the following year was characterized by the building of a new 
cabin, the calling of Pastor Hugh Watkins, the first revival and baptismal services 
and acceptance into the Yates Baptist Association (1950). 

By 1952, a church building was under construction and completed under the leader- 
ship of the Reverend Carroll Taylor. A house and land adjoining the original church 
property were purchased in 1956 for use as a pastorium. In addition to those men- 
tioned above, A. M. Beatty, James Taylor, Glen Cain, Dale Crockett, and James 
Roberts served Plainview during the intervening years. 

On November 1963 the Reverend C. Wray Ivey was called. He is now serving a 
membership of 196. Recently, the church completed a seven-room, full-daylight-base- 
ment, brick pastorium. It has now air conditioned the church sanctuary, voted a 



Yates Baptist Assoclatiox 



37 



$65,125 bond issue to finance the renovation of the sanctuary, the building- of 20 
additional class rooms, a libary, pastor's study, and the installation of a baptismal pool.

REPORT ON BIBLICAL RECORDER 

It is gratifying to make a more encouraging report on the Biblical Recorder this 
year than last. Last year the report showed a decline in subscriptions to the journal of 
the Baptist State Convention in the Yates Association from 1,707 in 1963 to 1,538 in 
1964. This year it is pleasant to report that the decline has been more than recovered, 
and with 1,751 subscriptions in 1965 the number has increased over that of 1963. 

Another gratifying feature of the report is the increase from five to six in the 
number of churches in the association which are sending the Biblical Recorder to every 
home in the church membership on the Every Family Plan. One church in this list 
last year, Alston Avenue, no longer uses the plan, but Durham Memorial and Guess 
Road have joined Gorman, Lakewood, Olive Chapel, and Yates in sending the paper 
to each home in their congregations. 

The number of churches from which no subscriptions are reported this year is up 
to four from three last year; among the four only one was in the group last year, but 



Yates Baptist Assoqation 



39 



three churches reporting subscriptions last year, one of them using the Every Family 
Plan, are reported among the churches with no subscriptions to the Biblical Recorder 
this year. Two churches removed themselves from this category this year. 

This year 20 churches reported an increase in the number of subscriptions, in com- 
parison with nine last year, and one new church group, the Parkwood Mission, is 
reported with a commendable 26 subscriptions. Nine churches report no change in 
the number of subscriptions, in comparison with six last year. The number of sub- 
scriptions showed a decline in 14 churches this year, in contrast with 29 last year. 
Churches in which an increase in the number of subscriptions to the Biblical Recorder 
is reported are Angier Avenue, Bethesda, Calvary, Carrboro, Cedar Fork, Durham 
Memorial, Ebenezer, Edgemont, Ephesus, Fellowship, Grace, Guess Road, Homestead 
Heights, Hope Valley, Immanuel, Pleasant Hill, Roberson Grove, Rose of Sharon, 
Watts Street, and Westwood. 

A comparison in the number of subscriptions by churches over the past three years 
may be of interest:

The Biblical Recorder offers a rate of $2.50 per year each when four or more mem- 
bers of the same church subscribe. The rate for the Every Family Plan, in which the 
paper goes to every family in the church, is $2.00 per year. To have every church use the 
Every Family Plan should be the goal in the Yates Association, not for an impressive 
show of statistics, but because the Biblical Recorder is an informative useful weekly 
which stimulates interest because it carries news about the missions, educational institu- 
tions, and service institutions which the Baptist of North Carolina support. A wide 
readership of the Biblical Recorder makes for an informed membership in our churches. 
An informed membership means stronger, more dedicated churches.

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

More than 35,000 sick people were seen in the clinics of our Baptist Medical 
Center in Winston-Salem last year, and more than 19,000 were hospitalized for bed 
care. These sick people came from all sections of our state, out of all kinds of financial 
circumstances, and with almost every type of serious disease and sickness known to 
man. Most of them were sent by their local doctors, because they had problems which 
were difficult of diagnosis or treatment, and needed specialized facilities and skills such 
as those found at our Baptist Hospital. 

In addition to the sick people who were served, there were more than 700 persons 
in training in the various fields of medical care and Christian service. These students 
were studying in ten different schools, and in other fields of training in our Medical 



Yates Baptist Assoqation

Center, and will go out to serve as physicians, nurses, technicians, pastors and other 
Christian workers, in our communities and churches throughout North Carolina and 
on our mission fields around the world. These schools offer excellent opportunities, 
and they are interested in qualified Baptist young- people who wish to invest their lives 
in useful service to their fellow man and in the Kingdom of God. 

The ministry of our hospital to people who are seriously ill and in meager circum- 
stances lies at the very heart of its total work. All of our Mother's Day offerings 
are used for this purpose: when the doctors have given their skilled services without 
charge to these patients, and the money available from all other sources is added, every 
dollar we give is multiplied nine times over in free service to those who need help. 

It is a high privilege for us in our churches to minister in the name of the Great 
Physician, through our hospital, to these multitudes who are sick. It will be a welcome 
voice when the King shall come in His glory and we can hear Him say: "Come, ye 
blessed of my Father; for I was sick, and ye visited me." 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. B. Cash, 

Hospital Representative 

REPORT ON THE CHILDREN'S HOMES 

Yates Association's giving to the Children's Homes for the year 1964, reached 
$16,804.00. That is a loss of $1,837.00 from 19635 15 Churches were below 1963 — 
First, let's ask ourselves these questions: 

1. Are the Children's Homes a necessity; 

2. Do they help our churches to fulfill their purpose; 

3. If the answers to the above questions show that there is a need and a value — 
Where do ive stand? Do we have a Christian duty? 

Let each congregation re-examine its responsibility in respect to the financial aid 
given to our institutions. 

For those of us who contribute through the budget, let us ask — 

1. How long has it been since the amount set up for the Children's Homes was 
increased? 

2. Are those in our congregations who might like to donate a special offering 
to the Homes given an opportunity to do so by: 

(A) Making special announcements around Thanksgiving time? 

(B) Distributing Children's Home literature that comes to each church? 

(C) Placing Thanksgiving envelopes where the worshipers can see and pos- 
sibly use them? 

For our churches that give by one annual Thanksgiving offering or by monthly 
offerings, are we — 

1. Giving enough advance notice as to the day set aside? 

2. Making personal contacts concerning the offering? 

3. Setting a goal above the previous year's amount? 

We of the Yates Association are really very fortunate. We have within our bounda- 
ries one of the finest and possibly the most far-reaching program ever instituted by the 
Children's Homes. We have what is known as the Greer Homes. The home on Wilson 



42 



Seventeenth Annual Session 



Court in Chapel Hill is a two-story residence that was purchased several years ago and 
is being- used as a rest home for emotionally disturbed boys. Mr. and Mrs. Walter 
Wood are the house parents. During- 1965 a new home, with 20 or more acres of land, 
has been purchased several miles from Chapel Hill. It is being used for girls with 
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Frye as house parents. 

The building of other cottages in the future to house the boys and to have a com- 
plete health-rebuilding campus is the hope of the directors for this new property. The 
two homes now being used can house only four or five children. The treatment of 
and for these children is given by the doctors of this area at no cost to N. C. Baptists. 
We should not only be proud, but we should be humbly grateful to those who have 
worked on this project, and to those who have given freely of their time and effort 
to make this program possible. 

It may be that our churches are laboring under the misconception that the Coopera- 
tive Program is furnishing all the financial needs of the Children's Homes. True, that 
was the original design of the program j or, so many of our Baptists throughout the 
State believe, but where would our Homes be today if that were there only income? 
For the three or four years that I have been involved in this, the State Cooperative 
Program share has provided less than 40% of the total spent. 

For the year 1964, for instance, the income of the Children's Homes read like this: 

The Cooperative Program 3 3% 

Thanksgiving 30% 
Monthly gifts 16% 
Endowments and Special gifts 21% 

100% 

Did you know that the Cooperative Program has never furnished the money to 
build a single building on any campus, with the possible exception of the Indian home 
at Pembroke, N. C? 

How do you as an individual or as an individual church feel about our program? 
The Federal Government thought enough of it to print a very attractive and informa- 
tive booklet about our homes and their future plans to be used throughout the United 
States as a guide. What are we going to do? 

Let us all remember His words — "Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of 
these. Ye — did it not to me!"

Max C. Weaver, 

Children's Homes Representative 

REPORT OF STUDENT WORK COMMITTEE 

The Student Work Committee likes to feel that it has been of some help to the 
work being done among the students at both Duke University and the University of 
North Carolina at Chapel Hill. There are certain concerns that have served as guide- 
lines or motivations for our work: 

1. Here within the area of Yates Association we have two of the finest universities, 
not only in the South, but, in the world. 

2. The enrolments of these two universities are growing at a rapid pace. 

3. Our Baptist young people are attending these universities in an ever increasing 
number. 



Yates Baptist Assoqation 



43 



4. While the enrolments and sizes of the institutions have changed tremendously in 
recent years, the size of our Baptist Student staff has remained rather constant. These 
two chaplains find that they are facing almost impossible odds as they seek to minister 
to this ever increasing number. Almost every other denomination which has student 
work at these universities has greatly increased its staff. Baptists continue to maintain 
only one chaplain at each institution. We are the largest denomination, with the most 
students, and yet we maintain the smallest staffs. 

Through your Student Work Committee, Yates Association has been seeking to 
meet this need by helping to provide assistance for the BSU Chaplains. In this way 
we will increase the ministry of our churches on the campuses. We are looking for- 
ward to a greater involvement in this work as the years pass. Through your gifts 
to the budget of the association and through the work of your Student Work Commit- 
tee you can have a part. 

It has been well said that the future belongs to those who prepare for it. Our 
young people will come to these two universities for preparation. Will we close our 
eyes to their spiritual needs while they are here? All of the mission fields are not away 
from you. Some of the "diamonds of opportunity lie at your feet." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Calvin Rains, Chairman 

REPORT OF EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

It is the desire of the Committee on Evangelism that all of our churches stress, this 
coming year, evangelism in every phase of our church life. We realize that as a 
committee we do not have any power or authority to act or to transact business in your 
church. We humbly pray that the Holy Spirit of God might lay upon all of our 
hearts the necessity of witnessing in this crucial period in our history. 

The Committee on Evangelism stands ready to help any church on any occasion 
plan and prepare for any type of evangelistic meeting in their church. It is the desire 
of our committee that each pastor lead his people in the pathway of evangelism. If 
our committee can be of any help to the local pastor or the local church please feel free 
to call any member of the committee this associational year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Malbert Smith, Jr., Chairman 

REPORT ON HOMES FOR AGING 

For the past 14 years, North Carolina Baptist have been engaged in a ministry of 
caring for the aged. During this time four homes have been established and 160 
residents are now living at Resthaven and Hayes Homes in Winston-Salem, Albemarle 
Home in Albemarle, and the Hamilton Home in Martin County. There are 175 people 
on the waiting list for accommodations in the Homes. Plans are being prepared for a 
fifth home at Yanceyville which will care for 30 additional residents. This Home 
was made possible by the most generous bequest of R. Sterling Graves and his sister, 
Mrs. Sallie Willie Graves Bradsher, of Yanceyville. The gift of land and money was 
enough to build and equip this home. 

We could not operate these homes without the concern, the prayers, and the financial 
support of our Baptist people. We are most grateful for the gifts coming from our 



44 



Seventeenth Annual Session 



churches through the special offerings, the third Sunday in February, and through the 
Cooperative Program. The special offerings for 1964 were at an all time high and 
exceeded $96,000.00 Through these gifts the Homes were able to supplement from 
80% to 90% of our needy residents who could not be there without that assistance. 

We are proud of the gifts made by 32 churches in our Association in addition to 
their commitments through the Cooperative Program. These extra donations amounted 
to $2,350.02 at the end of July 1965, and exceeded our previous extra gifts. We 
hope that ever church in our Association will consider it an obligation and a privilege 
to have a part in these extra gifts for the benefit of our elderly friends. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. T. Howerton, Representative 

REPORT OF MUSIC COUNCIL 

The Yates Associational Music Council for 1965 includes John T. Laverty, chair- 
man. Rev. C. Wray Ivey, Mrs. Loris Colclough, Mrs. Morris Currin, W. E. Byrd, Jr., 
Joseph McGugan, and Leonard Smith. 

This group exists for the purpose of assisting the churches of the association to 
improve their music programs by any means that seem wise and workable. As a side 
purpose, the group also assists in any way possible with the music of associational 
meetings. Members of the group want to know workers (especially those in the music 
field) in the individual churches, become friends with them, and give them any assis- 
tance needed. As members of this council, we do not presume to have answers to all 
problems, but we do pledge ourselves to work with and for the churches, as our time 
and talents permit, to improve the music ministry in any way possible. 

The following are some of the ways in which the council assisted in the months 
since the last annual meeting: 

December 7 — "M" Night (First Church) — music provided by an associational male 
Chorus. 

February 8 — Watts Street Church — A choral clinic, led by the noted choral and 
vocal authority, Paul W. Peterson of Winston-Salem, was held to give vocal and choral 
instructions, as well as examples of choral material, to members of choirs and music 
leaders in the churches. This was a fine and helpful effort to those who attended — 73 
people (including 14 choir directors) from 25 churches. Highest attendance was from 
Olive Chapel and Durham Memorial. 

Church Music Information questionnaires were sent to all churches, with the request 
that someone fill them out and return them to the association. It is hoped that by 
receiving as many answers as possible, members of the music council can more nearly 
determine the real needs of the churches in the field of the music ministry, and thereby 
make more intelligent plans to meet the needs. 

Sunday, May 16, 3 P.M. at Edgemont Church, the fifth annual Hymn Sing was 
held. All hymns used in the service were on the theme of "Jesus Christ, Our Lord" 
and had texts of European origin. The order of service was planned according to 
important events in the life of Christ, with appropriate Scripture passages read along 
with the hymns. 

Ernest Byrd, a council member, led a choral clinic for six Tuesday evenings in 
September and October at Mt. Gilead Church. The attendance and interest were both 



Yates Baptist AssoaATioN 



45 



very gratifying. This is an excellent example of the way the council can serve churches 
of the Association. 

Plans for the coming year include the following: 

"M" Night at First Church, Monday evening, December 6. An Assocational Choir, 
with as many singers from churches of our Association as possible, to sing several 
choruses from Handel's "Messiah," There will be two special rehearsals — 
^ P.M. on the two Sundays prior to the meeting (November 28 and Decem- 
ber 5) } 

A choir to participate in the annual associational meetings 

An associational-wide choral clinic February 21 at Grace Church (led by Mr. 
Peterson) ; 

An area choral clinic March 14 led by the music council, possibly at Mt. Gilead. 
Annual Hymn Sing May 1 5 at Olive Branch Church. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John T. Laverty, Chairman 

REPORT OF WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

October i, 1964., marked the beginning of a new denominational emphasis in the 
Yates Association Woman's Missionary Union, "The Church Fulfilling Its Mission 
Through Worship," with the challenge of the watchword, "I will praise thee, O Lord, 
among the people, I will sing unto thee among the nations." We have had many oppor- 
tunities through our W.M.U. to do our part to instruct and inspire members to a 
greater understanding and participation in worship. Worship is never complete until 
it sends us forth in service to others. 

The records show 47 W.M.S. organizations in the Association with a total member- 
ship of 2,626, 219 organizations in the W.M.U., and 4,845 members enrolled and 
engaged in missionary activities. 

The Leadership Institute was held at Calvary Church September 28— October i with 
218 enrolled. Thirty-four of the 46 W.M.U.'s were represented and 120 ladies re- 
ceived their cards of accreditation in preparation for leadership in the W.M.U. work 
for the new year. There were more organizations attaining recognition on the Aims 
for Advancement than ever before: 21 W.M.S. , 7 Y.W.A., 39 G.A., 21 Sunbeams — a 
total of 88. There is only one church in the Association without a W.M.S. The 
Associational W.M.U. reached the Honor recognition on the Aims for Advancement. 

Foreign Mission and Home Mission study workshops were held at Lakewood Church 
in September and January. 

Quarterly associational board meetings were held with good attendance. Thirty- 
one presidents responded to the invitation to attend the January meeting of the Board. 
The Yearbook, compiled by Mrs. H. S. Mumford, Mrs. John Freeman, Miss Wyona 
Chaney and Miss Louise Garrard, was distributed to each president and board member 
and the Aims for Advancement were discussed in preparation for the mid-year reports. 

The annual associational meeting was held at Lowe's Grove Church, April 29. 
Mrs. James Kirk, missionary to Brazil, was the guest speaker. Mrs. R. D. Holleman, 
a past associational W.M.U. president, installed the officers for the new year. There 
were 325 in attendance with 40 churches represented and 34 presidents. 

The annual W.M.U. Night was held August 31 at Yates Church with 172 in atten- 



46 



Seventeenth Annual Session 



dance (including 15 presidents and 4 pastors) and 27 churches represented. Miss Mary 
Herring of Raleigh brought the inspirational message on "Worship." 

A circle was organized in January at the Parkwood mission and is sponsored by 
the Yates Church W.M.U. They plan to organize a W.M.U. soon. 

In June the executive board had the privilege of attending a prayer retreat spon- 
sored by Grey Stone W.M.U. This was a very inspirational meeting and the Board 
plans to have a retreat during the coming year. 

Y.W.A. 

There are 26 Y.W.A. organizations in our churches with 222 members. The 
Council, led by Mrs. Donald Whitworth, director, has had four meetings one of which 
was a picnic and program at the Camp Grounds. Fifteen girls attended the House- 
party at Wake Forest College in August. 

G.A. 

The Girls' Auxiliary, 72 organizations, 865 members, led by their director, Mrs. 
C. P. Fogleman, has done outstanding work during the year. They have had four 
well-attended meetings with well-planned programs. These were held at Holloway 
Street with 223 in attendance. Grey Stone, 3025 Ephesus, 223, and in the summer a 
meeting was conducted at the Camp Grounds. 

On July I, Mrs. Fogleman, 30 girls, and 4 adults made a trip to Elizabeth City 
to view the migrant work and presented the camp with some useful gifts. This trip 
was planned in response to a program on migrant work. 

Mrs. James Hinson, G.A. Camp Director, directed a self-supporting Junior and 
Intermediate retreat at Camp Kanata in August with 128 in attendance. 

Dr. and Mrs. Alton Hood, missionaries to Thailand, were guest speakers. Mrs. 
Betty Clark Burris spoke to the intermediate GA's on the LISTEN project in Korea. 

The girls made 84 dolls to be donated to the Murdock School. The mission book 
"Horse Amber" was taught during this period. A GA was organized at Fieldcrest 
Mission under the leadership of Mrs. Fogleman. 

Sunbeams 

Mrs. J. E. Hughes, Sunbeam Director, reported 73 organizations with 1,020 en- 
rolled. Plans are in progress for the Sunbeam Directors to have quarterly associational 
meetings this year. 

A special project directed by Mrs. Marion Howe, Community Missions Director, 
has been the visiting of the Murdock School at Butner by one W.M.S. each Sunday 
presenting an inspiring devotional message. A program of planned Community Mis- 
sions was carried on throughout the year by the organizations: W.M.S. — 41, Y.W.A. — 
165 G.A. — 52; Sunbeams — 37. 

Forty W.M.S.'s engaged in five days of prayer for Foreign and Home Missions. 

The following organizations contributed to the three offerings. Foreign Mission, 
Home Mission and State Mission: W.M.S. — 39; Y.W.A. — 16; G.A. — 48; Sunbeams — 
32. 

The president and three members of the executive board attended the W.M.U. 
Conference at Ridgecrest. 

Ten board members attended Leadership Institute at Campbell College, August 26- 



Yates Baptist Association

28, in preparation for the associational workshop to be held at Grace Church Sep- 
tember 28. 

We pray that the new years with the emphasis "Proclaiming and Witnessing" will 
bring more members into our organizations and more souls into the Kingdom, not 
just to be counted but to have the joy that comes when we proclaim and witness for 
our Saviour.

Seventeenth Annual Session 



We realize that it is impossible to tell the complete story in facts and figures. If 
anything of lasting value has been accomplished, it will be seen in the lives of indi- 
viduals — our own and those to whom we minister.

Mrs. W. J. Broadwell, President 

REPORT OF THE JEWISH NEIGHBORS COMMITTEE 

Although this is a rather new committee, we feel that accomplishments warrant its 
existence. 

According to a recent survey, there are more than 465 Jews living within the city 
limits of Durham, and some 195 in Chapel Hill. This is indicative of a definite minis- 
try that has been and, in many respects, is being dreadfully overlooked by our churches. 
It is the desire of this committee that we be of assistance to the Association as we seek 
ways and means to reach our Jewish friends for Christ. 

During this past year a meeting of the entire committee was held at Shoney's with 
Mr. W. B. Mitchell, Home Mission Board, and Mr. Ernest C. Upchurch, Baptist State 
Convention, attending. Following this meeting, we went to Park View Church to 
meet with other interested persons from all over our Association. At this meeting, we 
were given facts and methods that would be helpful in reaching the Jew. 

From time to time, Yates Baftist Association Neivs has emphasized certain special 
days for the Jew, encouraging the people of the churches to remember their Jewish 
friends with cards, letters, visits, invitations and telephone calls. There is one remaining 
feast day in 1965 — on December 19 — Hanukkah. This is the feast of lights. Many of 
the Jewish customs are like ours at Christmas j therefore, this will be a wonderful way 
of inviting them to our Christmas festivities in our churches and in our homes. 

Dates of great importance to the Jew in 1966 are: 

Purim Passover Rosh Hashana Yom Kiffer Sukkoth Hanukkah 
Mar. 6 Apr. 5 Sept. 1 5 Sept. 24 Sept. 29 Dec. 8 

Through this committee, we seek to encourage the people of our Association to 
become very conscious of specific ways and areas whereby we as Christians might help 
win the Jew to Christ. We do covet your prayers and support. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John C. Grant, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE EXTENSION COMMITTEE 

In trying to carry out associational constitutional responsibilities and the command 
of Christ to preach the gospel, your Extension Committee has been working in the 
following major projects during the past year: 

I. The Edgemont Church in 1963 launched out on a program for reaching families 
in the Few Gardens area through a nursery-kindergarten. It was primarily designated 
to reach underpriviledged families. During 1964 they were granted $500 from the 
Baptist Foundation of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. This work 
has shown wonderful potential for reaching the unsaved. Your committee after dis- 
cussing the progress made in this area, recommends to the Yates Association that we 
give $300 this fall to this work. At the insistence of the Edgemont Church, the Ex- 



Yates Baptist AssoaATioN 



49 



tension Committee has kept advised of the progress and is also assisting in screening 
applicants for the kindergarten. Your Committee feels that this money will be well 
spent. 

2. During this year we have been able to enlist Carrboro to be the Mother Church 
for the area north of Chapel Hill. Your Committee will be working with the Carrboro 
Church in looking for a proper location. In the meantime, it is possible that a mission 
could be started if a temporary location can be secured. We refer you to last year's 
report for the possibilities in this area with the added word that certainly by this time 
there must be many additional prospects. 

3. Under the leadership of the Yates Church, the Parkwood Baptist Church Mis- 
sion has moved forward in a remarkable way this year. On March 15 a site was 
purchased at an approximate cost of $18,400. At that time $6,400 was paid with 
$1,000 from the Association, $1,500 from Yates Church, and the balance from mem- 
bers of the Mission. Dr. E. L. Spivey of the Division of Missions of the Baptist State 
Convention has been most helpful, and additional funds have been received from that 
source. Since that time, the Mission has continued to grow and they are now at the 
point when their plans for a church building are about complete and they are ready 
to proceed with the construction. The committee is very grateful for the leadership 
provided by Reverend Ray K. Hodge and Yates Church with this Mission. Things are 
moving along in a most satisfactory manner. 

4. The organization of the Fieldcrest Church was realized on October 17, 1965. 
As a mission it already had a Training Union, Sunday School, Woman's Missionary 
Union, Deacons, a budget, and a building financed through the sale of bonds. Your 
Committee met with this group immediately after the organization of the church and 
both groups request that this church be accepted under watchcare of the Association at 
this annual meeting. 

There are certainly other areas in our Association that need attention, particularly 
in the purchase of property. Unfortunately in the past our Association has purchased 
land only when a mission or church was needed immediately and when property values 
had skyrocketed. It is hoped that we can do more long-range planning and locate 
property prior to its rise in value. 

In summarizing our year's work, let us say that i) one mission has become a church 
and is requesting watchcare status in our Association, 2) a second mission is entering 
a building program, and 3) the organization of a third mission is imminent. The 
committee has received excellent cooperation from all the churches, and we feel that 
interest in the Extension Program of this Association is excellent as the year closes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. J. Broadwell, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL 

The Great Commission of our Lord continues to be the marching orders of Chris- 
tians in this twentieth century. We are to "Go and teach all nations, baptizing them 
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to 
observe all things. . . ." 

The Sunday schools of our churches have been assigned the tasks of teaching the 
Bible, reaching the unreached, leading all church members to worship, witness, learn, 
and minister daily, furnishing workers for various projects, and interpreting the work 



50 



Seventeenth Annual Session 



of the church and denomination — thus helping the church in its basic functions of 
worship, proclamation, education, and ministry. 

Southern Baptist Sunday schools are seeking- to enroll ten million by 1970. In 
order to achieve this goal, we must have an enrolment gain of approximately 30% 
in the next five years. We are challenged to have an enrolment of one million in 
North Carolina by 1970. Outreach must have priority. 

We are asking each Sunday school in our Association to accept a net enrolment 
increase of 3% for 1966, 4% for 1967, 5% for 1968, 6% for 1969, and 7% for 1970. 
We will grow great Sunday schools as we show compassionate concern for the unreached. 
Evangelism, stewardship, missions, discipleship — all wait upon outreach. 

These enrolment gains can be realized by organizing new Sunday schools (a new 
Sunday school will gain 30) ; the organizing of Extension Bible Classes (each will 
gain 10) ; the starting of new adult classes (each will gain 6) j the activating of 
Extension, Cradle Roll, and Young People Away department (each will gain 6) ; and 
enrolling Vacation Bible School pupils not in Sunday school. 

If we will follow the simple growth formula advocated many years ago by Dr. 
Arthur Flake — locate the prospects, enlarge the organization, provide needed space, 
enlist and train workers, and visit the people — we will reach more people for Bible 
to promote Operation Home Study and other opportunities for training j to cooperate 
study; our baptisms will increase; Christian stewardship will become a reality; and 
our churches will be strengthened. 

Along with an increased emphasis upon outreach, each Sunday school is urged to 
observe January Bible Study Week, to plan a church and mission Vacation Bible School, 
in the Adult Thrust movement, to participate in the associational Sunday school 
projects — clinics, conferences, enlargement campaigns; and to attend the Sunday school 
weeks at Caswell and Ridgecrest. When our Sunday schools begin moving forward, 
our churches will move forward. 

The Sunday schools in the Association reported a total enrolment for 1965 of 19,602 
as compared with 19,684 in 1964. 

The Sunday School staff for the past year was an excellent one and we were able 
to make giant strides toward our goal of going to the churches to meet their individual 
needs. Our entire staff held a one-night clinic at Ridgecrest Church. Individual 
conferences by age group workers were held at Holloway Street and Gorman. Staff 
members aided in preparation week at Bethesda, Holloway Street, Trinity (formerly 
Alston Avenue), and Grey Stone. 

Two conferences were held during the year. One of these was a simultaneous 
conference at Bethesda and University. 

The Vacation Bible School clinic was held at Grey Stone Church. The regular 
Sunday School staff conducted the clinic with some very fine outside help. Attendance 
was good. In the absence of a Bible School Superintendent, Bob-Hale Cooper, Minister 
of Education at Yates Church, directed the clinic. This was our first night meeting 
and proved to be very successful. 

A Director-Led Sunday School Enlargement Campaign, scheduled for February 12- 
18, 1966 is the big project for this coming year. This campaign is an effort to pro- 
vide for growth in the local church by improving the work of the Sunday School. 
Major emphasis is placed upon outreach. It is a cooperative effort on the part of the 
Association, the local church, the Baptist State Convention, and the Baptist Sunday 
School Board.

I strongly urge every church that possibly can to take advantage of this special 
emphasis. 

Most of our staff will be serving again, with excellent additions. We encourage 
every church to let us help meet individual needs.

Earl Long, Superintendent

REPORT OF FELLOWSHIP COMMITTEE 

Our committee this year has discussed the various areas of service open to it in 
assisting churches and/ or pastors having temporary difficulty. Experienced people in 
this field of service were contacted by mail and by telephone and the stage has been set 
for a depth study in this area during the coming associational year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John McDevitt, Chairman 



REPORT OF FINANCE COMMITTEE 

Committee meetings have been held during the year as often as required to effi- 
ciently attend to the financial affairs of the Association. The budget for 1965 was 
revised as necessary to bring it within the limit of projected income. 

Also during the year your committee presented to the associational board a proposal 
for a bond issue in the amount of $55,000.00, the proceeds of which were to be used 
for development of the Camp Grounds. This proposal was accepted and the bonds were 
sold with the understanding that the obligations so incurred would be met with proceeds 
from the "Quarter per Quarter" program. The bonds have been sold and the develop- 
ment of the Camp Grounds is almost complete. 



Yates Baptist Association

There has been a good effort on the part of this committee to meet with each indi- 
vidual member church of the association. This was done in order that the work and 
the needs of the association could be presented at the "grass roots" level. It is the 
opinion of this committee that this effort should be continued and intensified. 

Respectfully submitted, 
A. B. Stone, Jr., Chairman 

REPORT OF THE RADIO AND TELEVISION COMMITTEE 

During- the past year, the Radio and Television Committee undertook first to clearly 
define its mission and to identify the ways it can best serve the interests of the Association. 

It was recognized that the time and money necessary to produce a weekly program 
in its entirety rules this out. As a practical approach, then, we investigated the possi- 
bility of making the most use of the services offered by the Radio and Television 
Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. 

The committee chairman met with Mr. Hubert S. Mumford for a discussion of the 
needs of the Association, and the possibilities for meeting these needs through the use 
of radio and television. The chairman subsequently met also with Mr. Mumford and 
with Mr. Claude O'Shields, Eastern Representative of the Radio and Television Com- 
mission. We discussed the possibility of utilizing existing Baptist programs, which are 
recorded, and inserting brief announcements from the Yates Association. This would 
materially reduce the cost and the time required, as well as guarantee a professionally 
produced program of consistent quality. 

Mr. O'Shields then discussed our needs with Mr. Theodore Lott, Director of the 
Division of Educational Services, Radio and Television Commission. Mr. Lott sug- 
gested that the Yates Association subscribe to Religious News Service on a weekly basis, 
and utilize the material which they furnish — along with news from our own Associa- 
tion — for a comprehensive, weekly religious newscast. He offered to prepare and 
record an opening and closing for such a program, complete with music and sound 
effects as needed. 

This is where our efforts stand at the present time. We shall continue to pursue 
this matter with the intention of getting something on the air locally within the coming 
year. 

We also expect to ascertain the stations now utilizing Baptist programs, such as the 
Baptist Hour and Master Control, and to aid in any way possible in getting wider use 
of these. 

Finally, we are aware of the fact that WTVD has begun a weekly religious tele- 
vision newscast, entitled News of the Church, which may be utilized; and the Southern 
Baptist Convention has one-minute TV "spots" available for local use. We plan to 
utilize both of these opportunities. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Clarence E. Whitefield, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMITTEE 
Introduction 

The Christian Life Committee of Yates Association for 1964-65 has met frequently 
during the year and considered some of the social and moral issues that challenge Chris- 
tians daily in this difficult world. Recognizing at the outset of our work that we were 



54 



Seventeenth Annual Session 



limited in what we could do, five areas of concern were agreed upon for primary 
consideration: Crime and Law Enforcement, Poverty, Salacious Literature, Alcohol and 
Human Relations. We invite your attention to our thoughts and recommendations. 

Grime and L,aw Enforcement 

Early in the year the committee studied the report of the 1964 Durham County 
Grand Jury. This report pointed to "Piccolo Houses" and bootlegging establishments 
as important contributors to a high crime rate in the areas in which they are located 
and recommended they be closed. Attention was also called to the unusually large 
number of "nol-pros" cases involving persons arrested for driving under the influence 
of intoxicating beverages. Strong exception was taken to the vulgar and offensive 
character of periodicals prominently displayed for sale in this area. 

The Committee recommended to the Associational Board in December "that it 
recognize with appreciation the work of the Durham County Grand Jury as represented 
by its 1964 report and encourage the present Grand Jury in the implementation of 
recommendations contained therein." 

The Committee new suggests: 

1. That we consider it a Christian duty to respect the laws of the land and en- 
courage among our fellow citizens respect for law and order while recognizing the 
privilege of opposing and protesting seemingly unjust laws by peaceful and legal means. 

2. That we offer support and encouragement to our law enforcement officers and 
other duly constituted officials and assist them in every way in bringing criminals to 
justice and preserving a peaceful society. Specifically it is suggested: 

A. That we support proposals which would provide adequate financial re- 
muneration for law enforcement personnel. 

B. That we cooperate in law enforcement by revealing to proper authorities any 
knowledge of criminal acts and/ or breeding places for crime. 

C. That we willingly testify in court and serve on juries when duty requires. 

Poverty 

The Christian church cannot sit idly by while government and private agencies 
concern themselves with poverty and the problems of the poor. At every point of 
human need, the compassion of Christ should be reflected in the ministry of the church. 
In the city of Durham as in many communities of our nation, families are being dis- 
placed by urban renewal programs. In Chapel Hill a shortage of adequate housing 
for families of low income has spurred efforts by a public agency to meet this need. 
Adequate housing and employment opportunities are pressing needs of large numbers 
of our population who have not shared in the middle class prosperity familiar to many 
of us. 

We commend the following aproaches: 

1. That we seek to develop within our congregations a new awareness of the prob- 
lems of our fellow citizens who are deprived economically. 

2. That our churches provide a specific ministry of support and encouragement for 
the poor that would give consideration to all unmet needs — both material and spiritual. 

3. That we applaud, cooperate with, and participate in those agencies in the com- 
munity — ^both voluntary and tax supported — which are seeking to raise the social and 
economic level of our fellow citizens. 



Yates Baptist Association 



55 



4. That our churches endeavor to eradicate those conditions in the community 
which cause poverty and make it impossible for the impoverished to escape the cycle of 
poverty. 

Salacious Literature 

The Committe deplores the public display, sale and distribution of much litera- 
ture that must be classified as obscene. There is no easy solution to this problem. 
Censorship by government or private agency can easily and rapidly become the means 
of suppressing thoughts and ideas objectionable to a particular group. One thing is 
certain. The existence and distribution of salacious literature is due to the fact that 
some people find it profitable. It would not be profitable, however, if there was not 
a demand for it from the citizens of the community. 

The following suggestions are made: 

1. That churches ascertain to what extent obscene literature is a problem among 
its own members and seek to develop within its membership an awareness of its infec- 
tious nature. 

2. That church members make known their convictions about such material to 
those in the community who sell and distribute it. 

3. That all obscene literature received through the mail be reported to the post- 
master or the police for possible violation of the laws. Hope for change under current 
laws depends upon our cooperation at this point. 

4. That we upgrade our church libraries and encourage among our church mem- 
bers — including youth — an increasing use of this resource and other community re- 
sources for good literature for enjoyment, enlightenment and spiritual growth. 

5. That we give consideration to the responsibility of our churches to provide 
appropriate sex education for our young people inasmuch as much obscene literature is 
sexually oriented. 

Alcohol 

The dilemma resulting from the use of alcohol has existed for centuries and continues 
to intensify in our society. Frequently stated "solutions" generally are oversimplica- 
tions of a very complex problem. Christians do not agree about what should be done 
about alcohol — its sale, distribution, use, effects, consequences, etc. We offer no easy 
answers but recommend the following: 

1. That churches provide opportunity for its members (and particularly for its 
youth) to learn from competent sources of the dangers inherent in drinking alcoholic 
beverages, of damage to minds and bodies and of the social and moral implications. 

2. That churches attempt through diligent and prayerful study to reach conclusions 
concerning Christian guidelines for its members in dealing with problems created by 
drinking. 

3. That churches seek to minister specifically to alcoholics, providing understanding 
and acceptance of these persons in need and resources for their rehabilitation and sobriety. 

4. That churches provide a conscious ministry to the families of alcoholics. 

5. That we support and encourage those agencies and groups in the community 
which try to rehabilitate the alcoholic and educate the public to the dangers of alcohol. 



56 



Seventeenth Annual Session 



Human Relations 

Considerable progress has been made in recent years in establishing more congenial 
and just relationships between citizens of different races in the community. There has 
been, fortunately, a strong disposition to respect and obey laws. Business and profes- 
sional people have developed more favorable attitudes concerning equal treatment for 
all persons regardless of race, color, religion or national origin. While it is appro- 
priate to note discernible progress, we must confess that the churches of this Association 
have much yet to do as agents of reconciliation in the days that lie ahead. 

We concur heartily with the following statement taken from the most recent annual 
report of the Christian Life Commission to the Southern Baptist Convention: 

"Our Southern Baptist witness for Jesus Christ continues to be challenged more 
seriously and more fundamentally by the racial crisis than by any other ideological 
movement or moral problem in our time. While we thank God for legal, sociological 
and economic progress which has been made in race relations during the past year, we 
reassert our deep conviction that the ultimate solution of the racial problem lies on 
distinctly spiritual grounds. As citizens we are grateful for legal progress, but as 
Christians we long for far greater spiritual progress. The law can desegregate the 
public schools, extend public accommodations, and guarantee voting rights; but only 
the Gospel can transform human lives. Laws can open doors, but only Christ can teach 
us to love those who walk through those doors. We bear in mind that what the New 
Testament says is far more demanding than what the Civil Rights Law says and that 
the requirements of the church are far more stringent than the requirements of Congress. 
Christian love is never less than justice. It fulfills the law and then goes beyond it." 

In recognition of the above, we make the following suggestions: 

1. That we encourage all people to respect and support those laws which have 
been enacted for the stated purpose of securing fundamental citizenship rights for citi- 
zens previously deprived of such rights. 

2. That we state clearly our opposition to violence whether instigated by those 
supporting certain causes or by those opposed to various causes. 

3. That we seek means within our congregations to develop positive Christian 
attitudes toward people of all races and conditions as we recognize the worth of all 
human beings in the sight of God. 

4. That we commend those churches who have not applied racial or other human 
considerations in welcoming persons into worship and/ or membership. 

5. That we assert as an integral part of our Christian commitment our brotherhood 
with all Christians in the territory of the Association and beyond and recognize that 
this fellowship and the ministry of the Christian church can never be restricted by 
racial, cultural or other human distinctions. 

Invitation to Christian Life Conference 

You are cordially invited and urged to attend a Christian Life Conference planned 
by this Committee and sponsored by the Yates Association to be held on Tuesday night, 
November 2, at the Yates Baptist Church. We sincerely hope that each and every

REPORT OF THE DEACON'S COMMITTEE 

Nearly two thousand years ago Jesus commanded the twelve to "Go ye into all the 
world." 

The Deacons' Committee, knowing that Christ requires no less of us today, sincerely 
hopes that each deacon in every church may adopt this goal: 

That we go out daily to witness for our Lord, and that we encourage 
all laymen and laywomen to witness with a fervency and urgency to 
the unsaved until the Lord comes to call us home. 
We sincerely pray that we might realize that the clergy alone cannot get the work 
done and that witnessing to Jesus is our reasonable service unto the Lord. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Erwin Dilleahy, Chairman 



REPORT OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

This Committee has sent out a request to all churches for study course books for 
an associational library to be in our associational office. Some of our churches re- 
sponded with approximately 200 books. 

We also helped Fieldcrest Mission (now a church) catalog 125 books for their 
library. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Noah Brown, Chairman 

REPORT OF AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS COMMITTEE 

Each year our committee strives to provide a better and more complete library of 
tapes, records, filmstrips, slides and equipment for the use of our churches. This last 
year has been no exception. Comparative figures showing our progress since 1961 are 
as follows:

(One moving picture — "Tokyo Challenge") 



During the year our committee had three meetings: December 13, March 21, and 
April 21. The meetings scheduled for January and February were called off because 
of snow. At the first meeting special duties were assigned to individual committee 
members: photographers for associational meetings, maintenance of equipment, tape 
recording of messages, purchase of new equipment, producing sets of slides, etc. The 
cataloging of new A-V aids for the office files was done by Mrs. Emily Warren to assist 
the committee. 

The committee has agreed to purchase a polaroid camera for taking pictures for the 
NEWS bulletin, for publicity, and for preserving our associational history in picture 
form. Various models of the polaroid camera are being investigated. 

During the past few months "shots" of several associational events have been taken 
including the dedication of the "Nichols-Maddry Lodge" on October 10, 1965, at the 
Camp Grounds. Tapes have also been made of important speakers, such as Dr. James 
L. Sullivan on "M" Night and Miss Mary Herring at Bethesda Church. 

We urge future committees to take pictures from year to year of various events and 
emphases in order to preserve on films the progress of our association. We also en- 
courage individuals in the churches to tape speakers and take pictures for adding to 
the associational library if they are of sufficient value and quality. 

The committee would appreciate the names and addresses of individuals in the 
churches who are informed in audio-visual work. We encourage churches in the 
exchange of audio-visual aids that might not be in the associational library. 

Within a few weeks supplementary sheets will be mimeographed to bring the asso- 
ciational A-V catalogs in the churches up to date. 

We sincerely hope that it will not be long before our association will have new 
office facilities with adequate parking and room for our audio-visual aids library and 
equipment. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Roy Stallings, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE LAUBAGH LITERACY MINISTRY 

The literacy ministry has been established in order that we might use literacy as 
a tool for missions. Approximately 15 per cent of Durham County's population over 
25 years of age is "functionally illiterate.'' This term has come to be used to describe 
those with less than five years of schooling. It has been found that 8,930 persons in 
Durham fall into this category. 

The purpose of the literacy ministry is to teach a student to read the Bible. If 
the person is not a Christian, this will give the teacher an opportunity to lead him 
to accept Christ as Saviour. If the person is a Christian, this will be an opportunity 
to deepen the student's spiritual life. 

There have been four literacy workshops; two of which have been conducted this 



Yates Baptist Assoqation 



59 



year. One was held in the spring- at Grace Church under the leadership of Mrs. W. W. 
Daves of Gastonia, North Carolina. Another was held in September under the direc- 
tion of Miss Mildred Blankenship of the Home Mission Board, Atlanta, Georgia. As 
a result of the workshops we now have in our area 33 trained teachers in the Laubach 
method. 

During the year we were able to locate and place a few non-readers with teachers 
but have not been successful to find enough students for the number of teachers. How- 
ever, we are not discouraged for through prayer and the help of every church in our 
association we will be able to teach many non-readers to read the Word of God in the 
future.

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD 

During the year our associational Brotherhood/ Royal Ambassador organization has 
been very busy. Several of our group have been called upon by the churches of our 
association for help in various ways. Some of our number have served in other asso- 
ciations. A few are serving in State Convention Brotherhood positions. 

Four associational Brotherhood/ Royal Ambassador meetings have been held: Men's 
Rally, Ladies' Night Banquet, Man-Boy Night, and Brotherhood Workshop. In addi- 
tion, the Royal Ambassador organization has sponsored a mission tour to Wake Forest 
College, basketball and baseball leagues, a camping clinic on the Camp Grounds, two 
R. A. Leadership Courses. Our boys won first place in the Durham City track meeting. 

We are proud of the four distinctive tasks given to our organization by our de- 
nomination. It exists to help the local church achieve its missions tasks; it majors upon 
missionary education and missions promotion; it enlists men and boys in missions 
activities. 

No longer will there be overlapping in the tasks of the Sunday School, Training 
Union, Woman's Missionary Union, Music Ministry, and Brotherhood. The Baptist 
church in the future without a properly organized, motivated and used men's organiza- 
tion will have failed a large group of its membership, and will have failed in a vital 
area of its ministry.

Seventeenth Annual Session 



Our associational officers are eager to be of assistance to any church in starting- or 
in improving a Brotherhood organization. 

We foresee a bright future for Brotherhood work and for our churches through 
Brotherhood as our lay leaders and pastors get a clearer view of the purposes, the 
great potential and the proper use of this organization. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Aubrey Wheeler, President 

NEW OFFICE FACILITY REPORT 

In the few years of its existence the Yates Baptist Association has enjoyed a steady 
growth in the number of churches and in membership of churches. This numerical 
growth has been a source of satisfaction to all who were a part of the beginning days 
of this union. 

One of the finest areas of growth experienced within the Association has been in 
services offered and rendered through the Association Office to the churches and the 
denomination. More and more our association is being seen in the position of leadership 
in associational matters. 

This growth has been good for the churches and all concerned but it has brought 
problems. We have run out of space in the existing facilities. The present office space 
is no longer adequate for present needs. Changes in the parking areas in that part of 
Durham have almost isolated the Association Office. It is becoming more difficult to 
get in and out without great effort. 

The Moderator was authorized to appoint a committee to study the problems and 
needs of the association office space and to seek possible solutions. 

The committee has come to the conclusion that we should relocate the Association 
Office to a site which would be more accessible to all of the churches. The new 
facilities should include enough space for present and future needs. There will be 
a need for ample parking space. Thus far no decision has been made as to whether 
it would be better to build, rent, or lease this facility. The committee has looked at 
a number of sites and is still seeking other possible places. We have contacted the 
Architecture Department of The Sunday School Board and others for suggested floor 
plans that would serve our needs. 

We recommend that the Association empower the Moderator to continue this com- 
mittee with such persons as he shall choose and that this committee be instructed to 
bring a recommendation to the Executive Committee of the Association Board at the 
earliest convenience. 

Those persons now serving on this committee are: Ernest Holt, D. R. Perry, R. E. 
Sharpe, M. T. Edgerton. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Calvin Rains, Chairman 

REPORT OF ASSOCIATIONAL BOARD 

Your Associational Board met during the past year as follows: October 20 — Alston 
Avenue (Trinity) , November 1 7 — Ephesus, January 1 2 — Holloway Street, May 1 1 — 
Berea, July 20 — Fellowship, September 14 — Cedar Fork. Participation by the board 
members has not been as good this year as we would like for it to have been. We 
would urge the churches to elect members of the board who have a real interest in 



Yates Baptist Assoqation 



63 



the associational work and who will attend the meetings. To those who stayed away 
because of the report that we were entertaining snakes, we can assure you that in the 
future no snake will be admitted to board meetings. Therefore we will look for all 
board members at all meetings. 

The Moderator made the following appointments: 

1. The five members-at-large of the Executive Committee: Rev. Calvin Rains, Rev. 
Ernest Holt, Rev. Hoyt Rutledge, M. T. Edgerton, and Dr. D. R. Perry. Russell E. 
Sharpe was appointed to the place of Rev. Hoyt Rutledge when the latter moved out 
of the Association. 

2. Pursuant to the instructions of the Association in session at Olive Branch Church, 
October 28, 1964, the following were appointed to a special committee "to study the 
needs and possibilities of the Association with regard to the downtown church": Rev. 
Julius Corpening, Chairman, S. A. Agnello, Rev. Dennis Hockaday, W. J. Broadwell, 
Dr. John H. Bunn, Hugh M. Bagby, H. C. Bradshaw, Dr. John M. Cheek, Rev. Mal- 
bert Smith, Jr., Nelson Strawbridge, and Bert R. Titus. 

3. At the board meeting at Berea Church the Moderator was instructed to appoint 
a committee to seek out a new location for our ofiice where we can purchase, lease, or 
erect more adequate facilities, including space for parking. The five members-at-large 
of the Executive Committee were appointed for this task. 

Our Executive Committee recommends that our Association present an appropriate 
trophy rather than a printed certificate to the "Layman of the Year" at each annual 
session and that we grant the Associational Brotherhood the privilege of providing it. 

Yates Baptist Association is a very large business covering many areas of activity 
and interest. We have five large organizations and a multitude of committees. More 
than 200 persons in 48 churches are directly related to our Associational organizations 
and look to our Superintendent of Missions for guidance. We continue to grow in 
size and scope of operation. Accordingly we have outgrown both our staff and our 
office. We are very happy that our State Convention has appropriated $2,400 to 
enable us to add to our staff. Mrs. Betty Lamb has been added as secretary and Mrs. 
Emily Warren has assumed additional responsibilities in directing the office, thus releasing 
our Superintendent for more field work. This has not met our needs completely but 
it has rendered them less critical. We shall ever be indebted to the loyal, capable, and 
dedicated leadership of H. S. Mumford who is directing our work so effectively. We 
should look forward to the time when we can furnish him a full-time associate director 
with adequate secretarial staff for the then new office. Our most critical need at the 
present is a new location with additional office space and parking facilities. 

The past year has not been free from the usual handicaps that come from resigna- 
tions, moves, etc. Nevertheless, the work of the Association has moved forward in a 
remarkable way. You will be pleased with almost all of the reports. We are particu- 
larly enthusiastic about the reports being brought by the Camp and Extension Com- 
mittees. In addition to the usual basic operations carried on faithfully by all committees, 
these two committees reflect some new achievements fulfilling our hopes and dreams of 
many years. 

Your Board found it necessary to cancel one activity approved by the Association 
at its last meeting. In view of the emphasis being placed by the Sunday School Board 
on the Sunday School Leadership Preparation Week, September 19-24, our Central 
School scheduled for the same dates was cancelled and churches were urged to conduct 



64 



Seventeenth Annual Session 



their own "Leadership Preparation Week." A poll of several of the pastors revealed a 
desire for this action. 

All of our associational organizations have had capable and dedicated leadership. 
They have done outstanding work this year and deserve our highest commendation. 
It has been their intent and desire to serve the churches. In fact, they would have 
served the churches more had the churches called on them more. 

In addition to our debt to Mr. Mumford, we want to recognize the incomparable 
services of Mrs. Emily Warren. This wonderful Christian associate is not only very 
capable, but also loyal and dedicated. Her spirit combined with ability provide us 
with one of the finest staff members it is possible to have. Now, we have another 
personality in our office to be grateful for. Mention has already been made of Mrs. 
Betty Lamb. She has com.e to meet a critical need on our staff and has brought with 
her a spirit and attitude that compliment our office. 

As we draw this year to a close we say, "To God be the Glory, great things He 
hath done." We place the reins of leadership in the hands of a new moderator and 
look to the future confidently and prayerfully, trusting our Lord for wisdom, guidance, 
and power and we stretch forward to carry on His Kingdom work. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Russell Barbee, Moderator 

REPORT ON THE INNER CITY CHURCH 

The United States has become an urban society in less than a century. Presently 
some sixty per cent of the population lives in cities. By 1970 this will have increased 
to over seventy per cent. Some projections indicate that by the year 2000 only ten 
per cent of the people in this country will be living on farms or in small towns. 

This population shift has been accompanied by social, economic and cultural changes. 
Practically every area of endeavor and activity in American life is now dominated by 
an urban orientation. 

Unfortunately the church as we know it has not been a part of this transformation. 
It is still identified, in large measure, with a rural, small town culture. The interests 
and activities of many churches, even those in urban situations, are dominated by the 
situation which existed a generation ago. Programs are developed to meet the needs 
of so-called homogeneous groups. Activities are centered around the development of 
the institution. This, together with the flight of many churches to suburbia has been 
a major factor in the isolation of the church from the main stream of urban culture 
today. 

The churches that are left behind in the inner city are left with a multitude of 
problems. In addition to sheer survival there are the difficulties of ministering to a 
transient population while maintaining a stable membership. The added problems cf 
changing neighborhoods socially, economically, and racially make for the inner city 
church a point of real crisis in terms of existence. 

Durham is no different from other American cities at the point of the changes 
taking place and at the point of the problems of the inner city church. Radical changes 
are taking place in the downtown area and even more drastic alterations can be antici- 
pated. Urban renewal, downtown development, the expressway and annexation are 
not simply changes in the landscape of the city. Persons are involved in these changes 
and all of our downtown churches are seriously affected by these changes. We can 



Yates Baptist AssoaATiON 



65 



anticipate a significant increase in population over the next decade with the addition 
of new industry and institutions in the community. If the trends that have developed 
in other urban centers are followed in Durham we can also expect a return to the city 
by a sizeable segment of the population which has been fleeing to suburbia for the past 
20 years. 

Your Committee does not have any ready answers or easy solutions to the problems 
faced by the churches in the inner city or for the difficulties to be created by the antici- 
pated changes. It is our feeling that both churches and the Association need to face 
realistically the situation which now exists and through mutual cooperation develop 
effective ministries to persons in the city and to the city itself. To that end we request 
the opportunity for continued study through the coming year.

Julius Corpening, Chairman

REPORT OF CAMP GROUNDS GOMMITTEE 

Your committee is proud of the results of this year's improvement program. All 
who have seen the grounds recently have been elated at the positive potential for a 
truly consecrated recreation and camping and social facility. 

Despite the unsettled conditions this summer, 13 church groups have already used 
the lodge and approximately 900 people have used the grounds in some way since the 
coming of our full-time Superintendent of Grounds on July i. Reservations have been 
received as far in the future as next September. 

The lodge was dedicated on Sunday, October 10, and named the "Nichols-Maddry 
Lodge." Each of the tents will be named for a past moderator and future buildings 
will have symbolic reference to our Association. 

The water supply in the wells does not lend itself to further development of this 
site but acquisition of adjacent property to the eaft may be the answer to this problem. 

The writer recommends that the size of this committee be diminished to 6 or 8 in 
order to get more active members based on the experiences of the last few years. 

Mr. Earl Pittman, our Superintendent of Grounds, is doing a very good job and, 
we believe, enjoys his work very much. 

Our Superintendent of Missions has also put great effort into this project in assisting 
the committee, believing, as we do, that this can be a very strong unifying factor in our 
Association. , 

As soon as the details are worked out, a small fee will be charged to use the facilities, 
starting in January, in order to defray expenses of operation. 

We would remind all, however, that the development program is undergirded by 
the "Quarter Per Quarter" campaign started several years ago and needs constant sup- 
port by the churches. 

Respectfully submitted, 
George C. Love, Chairman

Seventeenth Annual Session 



REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MISSIONS 

This is the eleventh time it has been my privilege to attend an annual session of 
the Yates Baptist Association. The Lord has been good to your Superintendent of 
Missions and his family. 

During the past year our association has experienced the deep gorges of disappoint- 
ment but also the high peaks of success. More individuals have failed in their respon- 
sibilities this year but others have handed in superb jobs. 

Fieldcrest Baptist Church has been organized j Parkwood Mission has been sponsored 
by Yates Church and is well on its way. We have 35 people who have taken instruc- 
tion in the Laubach Method and are qualified to teach non-readers. The Christian Life 
Committee has worked hard. They have completed a worthwhile report and next 
Tuesday night our pastors and other church leaders should see to it that several hundred 
people are present at Yates Church at 7:00 for a very thought-provoking, challenging 
evening. We rejoice in having Mrs. Betty Lamb as well as Mrs. Emily Warren as 
co-workers in the associational office. We rejoice in the security that we now have 
with a full-time retired couple, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Pittman at the Camp Grounds. 

We are thrilled in the success of the $55,000 Bond issue headed by the Finance 
committee, A. B. Stone, Jr., chairman, and the resultant development of our Camp, 
especially in the erection of the "Nichols-Maddry Lodge." The dedication of the 
lodge on October 10 brought us great satisfaction. Scores of people have used and 
are using the grounds, especially this winterized building. Several churches have had 
groups overnight. One group of ladies had a prayer retreat; the associational Brother- 
hood fed the Ministers' Conference with country ham, eggs, grits and coffee one Mon- 
day noon. One church has reserved the lodge for an occasion next September. 

We rejoice in the work already done by our special committee for relocating our 
office. Fewer and fewer people are availing themselves of the facilities of our office. 
Parking is a problem. Mrs. Lamb is using a typewriter table for a desk and an empty 
room across the hall is being used temporarily for storage. 

On top of it all, we feel we have the best group of pastors, ministers of education 
and music we have ever had. To understand what I mean, you would need to be 
present at the Tuesday morning prayer breakfasts that they are having. 

The associations in our state differ greatly. One-half of them have receding popu- 
lations. The Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area is at the end of the North Carolina 
Metropolitan Crescent. One day we will be a tri-city. This means several more 
churches in the next few years. It also means greater attention to the problems of the 
inner-city churches of Durham due to urban renewal, shifting of population, erection 
of high-rise apartments, etc. 

But let us look at some of the trends within the program of our association. A few 
years ago the Baptist Sunday School Board urged a Sunday School meeting every month. 
Our new calendar includes only one night for conferences and Action Night in Septem- 
ber. On the other hand, our associational workers will continue to go to individual 
churches when they receive a call for assistance. 

Our Training Union organization has eliminated the awarding of banners at its 
meetings. On the other hand, great stress is being put on training by the home study 
method. The Brotherhood has eliminated one meeting in May. Members of the 
associational Music Council are offering training to individual churches over extended 
periods of time. 

Our Central School was cancelled this year; none will be held this coming year. 



Yates Baptist Assoqation 



69 



More individuals are being taught music in Mount Gilead each Tuesday night than 
were taught music in our last Central School. The Loyalty Dinner this fall was 
cancelled by the Finance committee in favor of offering to come to individual churches 
to explain the budget. Explanations for the various items were mimeographed and 
sent to strategic individuals in every church. 

Tomorrow morning at Mount Hermon a man in our association will be named 
"Layman of the Year" — another "first." You can see we are trying to get away from 
the group or mass approach to the individual approach. We are trying to be less 
impersonal and more personal. We do not want to get like some of our huge univer- 
sities. A student of one university said recently, "The only time I received any per- 
sonal attention was when I bent my IBM card." 

But the work of the Lord can be fostered as churches cooperate apart from the 
official organization called the Association. The program of each church should be 
different as it meets the needs of the people in its community. The differences in the 
people, its location, its pulpit ministry, its financial and educational abilities will deter- 
mine a church's program. Churches may agree on special ministries within an area. 
Grace has Sunday School for the retarded. Watts Street has a week-day program for 
the retarded. HoUoway Street has a ministry to the deaf. Several of our churches have 
day-care, nurseries, kindergartens and first grades. Only Edgemont is offering the 
facilities of kindergarten to those who cannot pay as a mission project in Few Gardens. 
Several churches will soon offer a ministry to non-readers. In many areas we need 
only one church offering help for a special group. 

Very seldom, if ever, can a church fulfill its potential ministry by "going it alone." 
In our two urban centers a church cannot adequately minister to its members or pros- 
pective members without knowing what help is available through city and community 
agencies. There is not a church that cannot be helped by greater participation in our 
Association. Ask Red Mountain, Plainview, Rose of Sharon, Alston Avenue (now 
Trinity), Faith and others about this. They called j we answered. There is far more 
scriptural basis for the Association than for the so-called independence of the local 
church. The autonomy of the local church does not exclude the interdependence of our 
churches. Baptist churches want to share! 

Sometimes we hear churches say of the Association, "We don't get anything out of 
it!" We get out of an association about what we put in. The key to missions is not 
*'what can we get?" but "what can we give?" Let us stop talking about THE Asso- 
ciation and start talking about OUR Association. Sometimes we hear the question "Why 
don't you visit us sometime?" Our answer is "We try to but it isn't easy to refuse to 
supply a pulpit or render a special service in one church in order to sit in a pew in 
another." 

What are some of the needs in our Association? We need to change our terminology 
from "Layman" of the Year to "Man" of the Year and let the W.M.U. furnish an 
appropriate award to the "Woman of the Year." We need to purchase property in 
anticipation of a new church rather than wait until it is an emergency and the cost 
of the land has tripled. We need a closer contact with city and county planners, and 
community service agencies. We need breakthroughs in our ministries to the non- 
readers, to the Jews, in setting up Seminary Extension Centers for our lay-people, in 
activating our Foundation and Fellowship Committees. I recommend that our churches 
be asked for the names and addresses of those to receive the minutes. 

We must re-locate our office as quickly as possible by building, leasing or renting. 
We must reach the hearts of more people in our churches with the message of local

missions. What people are not up on they are down on. Pastors, set up a meeting in 
your church, invite the Superintendent of Missions and let your people fire the questions. 
We have something to talk about, something to be proud of, something to sell. 

Our Yates Baptist Camp can be one of the greatest unifying factors in drawing our 
churches, our people together, in cementing our fellowship. We want our camp to 
be missions-centered with every facility named after a foreign missionary, every tent 
area named for a moderator, every road named for a General Secretary-Treasurer of 
our State Convention, and still other parts of the grounds having special significance. 

Have you ever heard an individual say that something cost him much more than 
he had expected? We found it so in the Camp development. I hope we can make some 
adjustments to finish the project. A financial report on this will be given tomorrow 
morning. 

Oh, how we would like to be able to move the old Matthew Tyson Yates homestead 
from the Mount Pisgah community to the Camp grounds. As your churches use the 
grounds this year, please share with us your spiritual experiences. 

Our Association exists for the churches as the churches exist for the individuals. 
What are some of the needs of the churches as your Superintendent sees them? 

A church tomorrow without a church council or cabinet will be like an automobile 
without a steering wheel. Without an annual calendar of activities it will be like a 
traveler without a road map. Yet 75% of our churches have neither. 

Our church leaders need to catch up in their knowledge and understanding of the 
new Brotherhood, Royal Ambassador, and Training Union programs, and new mate- 
rials, that have been produced in the last year or two. They need to stop minimizing 
these new organizations and materials until they know what they are. 

I would like some of our churches to investigate the comparative faithfulness of 
members who joined during revivals and those who joined at other times. I believe 
in revivals but I am concerned lest we make them merely semi-annual programs and 
forget that evangelism should be a way of life for the Christian. Evangelism is not a 
thing to be done but individuals to be won. Let us do more "cultivative witnessing"! 

We need to stop voting on all people at the invitation rather than a few — perhaps 
the children. A pastor should enlist the best-informed individual in his church to teach 
the New Member Orientation course to young people and adults, and others for the 
juniors and intermediates. Materials are available for all three classes. 

Seventy-five per cent of our churches need Manpower Surveys desperately. With- 
out question there are 4,500 men in our churches who do not have the smallest type 
of job. With more women in our churches but a higher percentage of them working, 
we can safely say there are 4,000 of them wholly unenlisted. They must be enlisted — 
Individually — if we have to discover jobs for them. 

Every church should have a Superintendent of Training, one who is informed or 
willing to become informed about the Church Study Course. If every Christian is a 
disciple and every disciple a learner, most of our members are far from what they 
ought to be. Let us encourage everyone to be reading, studying. Members who are 
readers of books on economics, politics, philosophy sometimes minimize these study course 
books, but usually they are not as well versed on subjects pertaining to the church. 
Let us encourage them to start with these simple books and then read heavier volumes 
as resource materials. 

This last year was not one of our better years in pastor-congregation relationships. 
Let us make this coming year one of happy churches and happy staff members! Let 
us refuse to do anything or allow anything to be done to cause discord. Let us see how 



Yates Baptist Association

many churches can complete a Constitution and By-laws that they might do "all things 
decently and in order." Pastors, let us insist on democracy in our churches. Church 
members, let us assume the positions of co-workers, share in much of the visiting, coun- 
seling, praying. 

Let us follow the leadership of the Lord and determine that 1965-66 will be the 
best year yet. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. S. Mumford, Superintendent

CONSTITUTION COMMITTEE REPORT 

The Constitution under which the Yates Association is now operating was adopted 
in 1964. No proposed amendments to that Constitution have been presented to the 
Committee for action and the Committee does not recommend any changes in the Con- 
stitution and By-Laws. 

Neither has the Committee been called upon to interpret any section o£ the new 
Constitution. 

Respectfully submitted, 
L. J. Phipps, Chairman 
H. B. Anderson 
Francis E. Walker 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON RESOLUTIONS 

Your Committee on Resolutions offers the following- resolutions for adoption: 

1. That the leaders and membership of The Carrboro and Mt. Hermon Churches 
be thanked, gratefully, for being such wonderful hosts to people of our Association 
these two days. And particularly for the women who brought food and served so 
efficiently. 

2. That we express our gratitude to our Program Committee, our Superintendent 
of Missions, and all committees and persons working with our Moderator, Brother 
Barbee in making these sessions so inspirational and challenging to us all. 

3. That we express our deep sympathy to the families of those of our number who 
have departed this life since our last meeting. May we all acknowledge with grateful 
submission, the unchanging appointment of our Loving heavenly Father. 

4. That we commend with appreciation the Editor and staff of the Biblical RecordeVy 
for their efficiency and fairness in reporting both sides of controversial issues. Also 
for the Editor's well-expressed position on Human Relations, and other pertinent issues 
of our time. 

5. That we, in this seventeenth session of Yates Baptist Association, join with First 
Baptist Church, and The Angier Avenue Baptist Church, both of Durham, in requesting 
the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina to dedicate the next Convention Annual 
to the late C. Nixon Royal 5 long time pastor in the state, the last twenty-one years 
being at Angier Avenue Baptist Church. 

6. That we acknowledge our failures and lack of obedience to our Lord, and 
prayerfully urge our brethren in Christ to renew our devotion to the cause of our 
Saviour, Who bought us with His own blood. 

Respectfully submitted, 

T. W. McNeely and Committee 

SEMINARY EXTENSION REPORT 

In the Plan Book prepared by the Seminary Extension Department of the Southern 
Baptist Convention this statement of purpose is given : 

"The purpose of the Seminary Extension Department is to educate and 
train pastors and other vocational church leaders who cannot attend a 
college or a seminary. . . . The extension center program is designed to 



Yates Baptist AssoaATiON 



73 



meet the educational needs of Baptist leadership in churches in certain 
geographical areas. The ultimate aim is for a better denomination, better 
leadership, better preaching", and better human relationships." 

{Plan Book J pg. i) 

One of the heart cries of people across the Southern Baptist Convention has been 
for some studies in depth of the Bible, theology, and the application of these two. This 
expressed need in our own association has brought about the establishment of a Semi- 
nary Extension Committee with the hope that the future will see a center or centers 
established within its environs. 

It is the hope of the committee and its director that the spring of 1966 will see 
the fulfillment of these desires. But, there is much that must be done in order for this 
to succeed. 

In the weeks ahead you will receive by mail materials of information regarding 
the establishment of a center or centers. You will be asked to designate areas of studies 
and subjects of interest to you. Your response will be necessary for your committee to 
know how they are to proceed. 

In this space age the "count-down" is of great importance. We do not want an 
abortive center because of failure in our count-down. Will you aid us in keeping all 
systems in the "Go"? 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert E. Gray, Director
